A suicide attacker blows himself outside an imambargah in Bolan’s Goth Chalghari area on Thursday, martyring at least ten people and injuring many others.
Rescue workers and people of the area faced difficulties in shifting the injured to any hospital.
There is only one basic health unit in the vicinity, that too without a qualified doctor and proper health facilities.
More than a dozen people were injured in the blast, which rocked the village located in interior Balochistan.
Security forces have reached the blast site and cordoned off the area.
According to initial police investigation, a suicide bomber blew himself up outside an imambargah in Goth Chalghari area of Tehsil Bhag in Bolan district.
The injured would be shifted to civil hospital Sibi for medical treatment.
The explosion was heard in a wide area and shattered windows in the nearby vicinity.
Security has been beefed up in and around the locality after the blast, with contingents of FC and police patrolling different areas.
Earlier in the week, a blast in a local bus killed at least 10 people, two of them children, on Sariab road. Twenty-two people were injured, six of them seriously.
Balochistan Chief Minister Abdul Malik Baloch had condemned the blast and said, “I am personally monitoring the situation.”
Preparations were made to ensure that the Muharram passes incident-free and security plans to ensure the safety of processions were finalised.
