QUETTA: At least three coal miners died while two other were injured after blast took place in a coalmine in Dakki area of Balochistan on Monday.

District police said that miners were busy working in a mine several feet deep when it caved owing to blast due to accumulation gas inside it.

A miner told media that they recovered bodies after six hours of digging as there was no machinery available.

The bodies were later shifted to District Headquarters Hospital while the injured were admitted.

Such kinds of incidents have become a routine matter in coalmines across the country due to unavailability of facilities and rules.
