10 killed in passenger van fire on Karachi-Hyderabad highway
KARACHI: Ten people were killed when a passenger van caught fire after the vehicle’s CNG cylinder exploded, officials said late on Sunday.

Two of those killed have been identified as residents of Hyderabad while DNA samples of the other deceased have been sent for testing.

An 18-seater van with 11 passengers onboard was en route to Karachi from Hyderabad when it caught fire near Nooriabad, Jamshoro.

The van caught fire after it overturned when its tyre burst leading to the cylinder explosion.
