Larkana: Gas pipeline blown up
LARKANA: Some miscreants blew up a gas transmission pipeline early on Thursday near Tangwani. The damaged pipeline supplies gas to Karachi.
Chief Engineer (Transmission) of the Sui Southern Gas Company Limited (SSGCL) Ghazi Anwar Kerio confirmed the incident and said that some 40 feet pipeline was blasted by the miscreants at about 6.30am in Village Hajano near Tangwani.
The SSGC authorities immediately switched over transmission to Shikarpur station since there are three alternate lines.
