One miner has been seriously injured

Four miners were killed after an explosion at the Chamalang Coal Mines in Balochistan’s Duki.

Gas filled the mine and caused the explosion, say the police.

All five workers are from the same family and two of them were brothers.

The bodies have all been retrieved from the mine and taken to a nearby hospital. They will be sent back to Afghanistan after the medical investigations are complete.

On December 27, three  workers were killed after a coal mine collapsed in Chamalang. The mines officials said that their bodies were pulled out from the coal mine by a rescue team.

Mines in Balochistan are notorious for poor safety standards and bad ventilation. Such incidents are not uncommon in coal mines in Pakistan, most of which are located in Balochistan. In August, 13 miners were killed in Balochistan’s Sanjidi after a mine collapsed.

Two others suffocated to death in an accident on September 2 in Balochistan’s Much tehsil.

At least 30,000 miners are associated with coal mine industry in five districts of Balochistan. However, they face different problems owing to insufficient facilities.
