ISLAMABAD: Condemning the blasts in Jaffer Express train and train accident in Patoki Federal Minister Railways Saad Rafique has said that that involved in the blasts are being chased and every single one of them would be brought to justice.

Talking to media here he informed that Jaffer Express train, which was on its way to Rawalpindi from Quetta, was targeted for sabotage between Maach and Aabgumm and that there were two blasts in the train- the first was more powerful and killed four people and injured 16 while the second was not as powerful.

Talking about the security of the train Saad said that on this track a train does ot operate without security clearance. A terrorist was caught installing a bomb from the same area yesterday after which issuance of security clearance poses a big question mark , he said adding that this is a single track and manual mode is being used. If any worker of the Railways is found negligent stringent action would be taken against him, he said.
