Balochistan (Pakistan), Mar 09 (ANI): Baloch Liberation Tigers (BLT), a pro-freedom group, has claimed responsibility of blowing up-gas pipeline in Balochistan’s Dera Bugti area. According to local media, the organisation has blown up the gas pipeline near the Sui Gas Plant on Friday. According to local sources, four Defence Service Guard (DSG) personnel were killed while two local employees were wounded due to the massive fire after the explosion. There is no official confirmation by the authorities. According to media reports, a similar blast took place in Sui Gas Field wherein the Baloch Liberation Army blew up a 28-inch diameter gas pipeline. The Baloch nationalist groups attacked the gas pipeline as they blame Islamabad for exploiting their natural resources. Gas produced in Balochistan is supplied to Punjab province of Pakistan whereas people in Balochistan have no fuel for their household consumption. It is pertinent to note that Balochistan has reserves of gas, minerals and other natural resources which Islamabad continues to exploit.
