DERA BUGTI: Unknown miscreants blew up a gas pipeline in Balochistan’s Dera Bugti district on Tuesday night that led to the suspension of gas supply to the Sui plant from the wells, a Levies official said.
“A planted device was used to damage a 24-inch diameter pipeline near Bugti Colony. The blast blew away a considerable length of the pipeline,” the official said.
Meanwhile, the security agencies reached the site and began an investigation into the incident while the Sui gas plant operators said that repair work would be initiated after security clearance.
On Monday, three gas pipelines were also blown up in Dera Murad Jamali area of the province.
The pipelines were supplying gas to the Uch power plant in Dera Murad Jamali area. Following the damage, at least 550 megawatts of power supply was suspended.
