Bengaluru cylinder blast kills five

Bengaluru 3 dead after 4 houses collapse due to cylinder blast several trapped

Kelachandra Joseph George, Minister for Bengaluru Development and Town Planning, told ANI, "Government will adopt the girl (whose parents died) who was rescued and will take care of all her expenses". Death toll may rise as many people are feared trapped under the debris.

"Cylinders on both ground and first floor had no gas in them so it is unlikely that the buildings collapsed due to blast", Reddy told media on spot.

He had earlier announced compensation of Rs 5 lakh for the next of kin of each of the deceased and Rs 50,000 each for the injured. The Karnataka government has chose to adopt the girl who lost her parents in the building collapse on Monday.

Initially it was reported that buildings collapsed due to cylinder blast.

According to eye-witnesses, the blast took place at around 7 am leading to the partial collapse of the residential building. They heard a blast and the 20-year-old building was reduced to a pile of rubble.




The deceased are identified as Saravana (31), his wife Ashwini (27), who was eight months pregnant, Kalavathi (68) and Ravichandran (45).

Officials of the National Disaster Response Force, State Fire Department, and Bengaluru Bruhat Mahanagara Palike are engaged in the rescue and relief process.

"Two families were residing on the ground floor, while one was on the first floor".

Gunesh had rented the building to four families, he added.

The rescue operation is reportedly being carried out by at least 40 firefighters and NDRF personnel.
