The body of a cook from Bhatsangavi village, who died in the Hyderabad blast on Thursday, was brought to his village in Bhalki taluk on Friday and cremated.

Padmakar Kulkarni (50) went to Hyderabad on January 22 to work as cook for a private event.

After receiving Kulkarni’s body, Karnataka state Food and Civil Supplies Corporation president Prakash Khandre appealed to Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar over phone to pay proper compensation as the family is very poor. Kulkarni is survived by his wife Jaishree, four daughters and a 12-year-old son. Three daughters are married.

Three others from the state who were injured in the blast are undergoing treatment in Hyderabad.

Maruti (19) Audatpure from Kerur village of Bidar taluk, was working as a daily wage labourer.

Sultan Patel of Itaga [K] village told Express that his brother Peersab Husensab and relative Peersab Maheboobsab of Khanadal village, who were working in Hyderabad as construction labourers, were among the injured.

Husensab sustained injuries to his head, chest and waist while Maheboobsab had a leg fracture. They were going on their two-wheeler when the blast occurred.
