In August last year, three children including a young girl, her teenage brother, and a cousin were killed while another child was injured as a mortar shell they were playing with exploded in Umer Shar village near Ghotki district town of Ubauro.
The ill-fated children, according to the parents, found a mortar shell while playing outside the village and it exploded when children put the shell into flames.
The blast was so serious that Bachi Shar, 20, and her 12-year-old brother Arbelo Shar died on the spot while Jam Shar, 13, later succumbed to injuries at Obaro hospital.
10-year-old Rashid Shar sustained injuries. Rounti police have said the investigation is ongoing and no case has so far been registered.
