6 killed as cylinder blast brings down building several feared trapped

Three killed in cylinder explosion in east Bengaluru

Six people were killed and many feared trapped when a multi-storey building in the city's congested Ejipura area collapsed on early on Monday minutes after a cooking-gas cylinder exploded. Bengaluru development minister KJ George also announced that the state government will adopt the girl whose parents died in the collapse. Few others are also suspected to be trapped in the heap of debris.

Initial reports claimed that the collapse happened due to a cylinder blast, but Karnataka Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy later confirmed that this was not the case. The minor girl was rescued from the debris but she lost both her parents in the building collapse incident. However, the Karnataka Home Minister has negated the assumption of cylinder blast behind the building collapse. Everybody was asleep when the accident took place around 6.30-6.45am.

Personnel of the Fire brigade and National Disaster Response Force, who rushed to the spot, recovered the bodies including that of two women. An agency reported that the intensity of the explosion caused the partial collapse of the four houses that were in the building. "So it is unlikely that the buildings collapsed due to blast", Reddy later added.
