At least seven people, including a chairman of a union council (UC), died in a landmine blast in Pakistan's Balochistan region on Monday.
Deputy Commissioner of Panjgur, Amjad Somro, told Dawn News that miscreants had planted a remote explosive device to target a vehicle carrying Balgatar UC Chairman Ishtiaq Yaqoob and others who were returning from a wedding ceremony.
As the vehicle reached Chakar Bazar in the Balgatar area, the device detonated, resulting in the loss of lives, he said.
The deceased people were reportedly identified as Mohammad Yaqoob, Ibrahim, Wajid, Fida Hussain, Sarfaraz and Haider, who were residents of Baltagar and Panjgur.
Levies said four deceased people remained unidentified.
An investigation into the incident is currently underway.
