Vents for gas escape had been blocked due to shops being built on sewerage pipes.
In the Lasbela region, gas from a clogged sewerage line caused an explosion on Friday. Three of those who were injured suffered critical injuries.
The blast was so powerful that vehicles and motorcycles, parked along the sewerage system, flew into the air as if they were toys.
One pickup flew into the air and hit a luxury car next to it. Both cars were damaged.
When the roof of the Nullah collapsed, the shops and stalls that had been encroaching on the sewerage pipe fell down into the gutter.
It was a distance of one kilometer away that the noise of the explosion could be heard, shaking windows. The people were terrified of a terrorist act.
Bomb Disposal Squads began their investigation into the origin of the explosion. BDS later verified that the explosion was caused by a non-explosive material and was not an act terrorism.
Three of those injured were transported to Dr Ruth KM Pfau Civil Hospital in critical condition with third-degree injuries.
Police blocked a side road in order to assist with rescue operations. A huge traffic jam was caused in the area after the Lasbela route connecting South to Central District was closed by an explosion.
K-Electric responded immediately to this incident and dismantled the lighting system, which prevented any more deaths.
For the safety of rescue, police have closed down traffic on a particular road. A witness said one person had been missing and that was why the investigation was intensified. But no body was located. The shopkeepers estimate that the sewer pipe is 500 metres in length. Earlier there were small holes that allowed the gas out, but when the shopkeepers extended the shops, it blocked the way. This caused an explosion.
The shop owners were distraught, unsure of who would assist them in recovering their losses. The Express Tribune quoted locals as saying that the destroyed stalls and shops were the result of encroachment.
Three of the injured include Naseeruddin Arif Usman Khuram Laldin Muhammad Ejaz Hafeez Mansoor an unidentified individual. The doctors say three of the patients are burnt and in critical condition. Lasbela closed down, and vehicles queued up.
