Daharki : Passengers including women and children faced immense problems as Karachi-bound Awam Express halted at Daharki railway station due to engine failure on Monday.

However, even after passage of 18 hours alternate engine could not be provided as rail traffic on one track also remained suspended and other trains including Taizgam, Khyber Mail and Nigh Coach stopped at different stations.
