One labourer recovered alive
Four labourers were killed after inhaling poisonous gas while working in a coal mine in Balochistan’s Harnai Wednesday afternoon.
Five miners fainted inside the mine after a gas leak, according to Levies officials. Four bodies and an unconscious labourer were retrieved later.
The bodies and the injured miner were being moved to the hospital.
Earlier this year in January, ten labourers from the Hazara community were killed after unidentified men opened fire at a coal mine in Balochistan’s Machh.
According to the Levies force, they were first kidnapped from a mine and then shot. Following the massacre, families of the bereaved took to the streets in Quetta and protested for more than a week.
