Lahore, Apr.27 : Militants on Saturday blew up a gas pipeline in the Sui area near Jaffarabad, suspending gas supply to various Punjab districts.

According to a Geo TV report, the gas supply had been suspended to several southern Punjab districts and powerhouses.

It said the Baloch Republican Army (BRA), a banned militant outfit, has claimed responsibility for the incident to force the government to meet their demand of seeking royalties for the region's gas supply and for a share in government jobs.
