QUETTA: A pipeline transmitting gas to Karachi and interior Sindh was damaged in a blast by unknown attackers near Dera Bugti’s Sui area on Monday, DawnNews reported.

Security sources said the explosive material was planted in the Gopat area, 24 kilometres from Sui.

The blast took place and the pipeline caught fire as a result. However, due to insecurity in the region, the pipeline’s repair could not be initiated at the time.

Sui gas sources said a technical team would be sent to the site today to repair the pipeline.
