Landmine explosion outside Baloch folk singer’s house injures two

QUETTA: A planted landmine exploded outside the house of Baloch folk singer Sabz Ali Bugti in Dera Bugti Town in Balochistan, injuring his son and niece on Saturday.
“The landmine was planted outside the house of folk singer Sabz Ali Bugti,” an official of Dera Bugti Levies told The Express Tribune.
According to him, Sabz Ali’s six-year-old niece Nabila and seven-year-old son Abdul Majeed Sabz were playing outside their house when the landmine went off.
The children sustained critical wounds, and have been shifted to a hospital in Rahim Yar Khan as there are not any proper health facilities in Dera Bugti.
The six-year-old girl is in critical condition, medics said.
The motive behind the explosion is not yet known. However, the Balochistan Levies have started an investigation into the incident.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the incident.
Dera Bugti is one of the worst militancy hit areas in Balochistan, where clashes between security forces and Baloch militants often take place.
