KASHMORE: At least five people, including two children and two women, lost their lives on Tuesday after the gas cylinder of a passenger van exploded near the toll plaza in Kashmore.

Eight others secured burn injuries as the van travelling from Kandhkot to Kashmore caught fire and were shifted to a burns ward in Rahim Yar Khan due to the unavailability of any facility in Kashmore, police said.

A similar incident had injured eight children in Karachi’s Orangi Town area as their school van caught blaze, which was carrying fourteen children en route to their school located in Nazimabad this year.
