TWO BALANGIR BLAST VICTIMS DIE
Saturday, 29 November 2014 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
Two out of the three labourers who sustained severe burn injuries due to explosion in a cracker making unit in Balangir on November 26 died at the IGH Hospital in Rourkerla on Friday. They were identified as Narendra Suna and Nilamani Suna.
According to police sources, Narendra, Nilamani and Riku Suna had been injured in an explosion that took place while the trio was manufacturing crackers in the house of Jugal Kishore Patra of Radharani Pada in Balangir town.
The injured labourers were first taken to the District Headquarters Hospital, Balangir and later, shifted to the VSS Medical College, Burla. However, as their condition deteriorated, they were again shifted to the IGH, Rourkerla.
Meanwhile, the Balangir Town police have registered a case under Section 286/337/338 of IPC and 9(B) of Explosive Act and forwarded a person to court in this connection.
It may be remembered that a few months ago there was also such a cracker explosion at Gandhinagar Pada. The locals have demanded shifting of the cracker making units from residential area.
