At least 11 people lost their lives due to a methane gas leak inside a coal mine in the Sanjdi area, approximately 50 km from Quetta, Dawn reported. The incident occurred on Monday, claiming the lives of nine coal miners, a coal company manager, and a contractor.

Abdul Ghani Shahwani, Chief Inspector of Mines in Balochistan, stated that the miners were working around 1,500 feet deep when the gas eruption began, quickly spreading and causing the miners to lose consciousness. The group entered the mine at about five o’clock in the evening, but after 1.5 hours, no signals were detected from inside the mine.

Rescue teams from the Mines Department, responding to the lack of communication, rushed to the site. They entered the mine after taking safety precautions and venting the gas, only to find all 11 individuals dead. The bodies were subsequently moved to a nearby health facility, according to Dawn.

The mine is operated by the United Coal Mining Company, and all the deceased miners were from Swat. An investigation into the incident is ongoing, and the coal mine has been sealed temporarily.
