One person was killed while two persons were injured in an LPG cylinder blast inside a kitchen of a house in Kudara Village of north Kashmir’s Bandipora district on Thursday.
Sources told that the LPG gas cylinder blast occurred in the house of Mohammad Shafi in Kudara Village, leading to death of one Sajad Ahmad Khan (19) son of Faroz Ahmad and injuries to two persons.
Meanwhile people and police rushed to the spot and doused off the flames.
The timely action, sources said, prevented the fire from spreading further and was contained before it could caused severe damage to the house. In fact, they said, barring small damage to the Kitchen, the rest of the house was saved.
Two injured persons were referred to CHS Chuntimulla, where they were shifted to DH Bandipora for further treatment.
