The terrorists attacked Jaffer Express Train near Mach, Quetta. Two bombs were detonated by remote control device, killing 8 passengers and wounding 19 others. The train departed from Quetta bound for Rawalpindi. It was targeted near Jalabad, Mach district. FC and Levies’ Jawans reached the site of the incident and started rescue work. Wounded victims were sent to District Hospital Mach and airlifted to Quetta Hospital. All train traffic was suspended on this line. Rail track has been repaired and traffic restored. A spokesperson of Balochistan Liberation Army claimed responsibility of the dastardly attack. The terrorists are still at work killing people at random all across Pakistan. Not a single day passes that we hear about some tragic incident or atrocious act of terrorism.
The terrorist attacks continue unabated. It may be a reaction to the operations against them. We need to stop bleeding of Baloch by iron hand. The government needs to remove disparities and injustices existing in Balochistan. May Allah rest the departed souls in peace & eternal tranquillity. and grant courage & patience to the relatives of the victims to bear this irreparable loss.
