BANGALORE: A family that was celebrating the birthday of a one-year-old boy least expected it would turn tragic. An explosion due to an LPG cylinder leak claimed the boy Nikhil Gowda’s life and left five including a three-year-old girl and a woman, badly hurt.
The incident was reported at Hegganahalli in Srigandhanagar in Rajagopalnagar police station limits late on Friday night.
“The impact of the explosion was so huge that the walls, roof and other household articles were badly damaged. Even Nikhil’s three-year-old sister Mangala’s condition is said to be critical and the chances of her survival are very slim,” police said.
