JHAL MAGSI: Unknown gunmen set fire to two Nato oil tankers and injured three drivers on National Highway near Dhadars Bypass area of Balochistan’s Kachhi district on Monday.

According to police, two Afghanistan-bound Nato oil tankers were coming from Karachi when armed men intercepted and opened fire on them.

As a result, three drivers sustained bullet wounds while two oil tankers caught fire and were incinerated.

The injured have been shifted to nearby hospital for medical aid. The attackers managed to escape from the scene following the incident.
