One person is dead and more are feared after a blast at a chemical factory in Jalgaon, Maharashtra

One person died and at least 17 others were injured in an explosion at a chemical industry in Jalgaon, Maharashtra. The explosion set the whole plant on fire. Since some individuals are apparently still trapped inside the facility, further fatalities are expected.

In a related event, on Tuesday afternoon, an explosion at a firecracker plant in the Indore region of Madhya Pradesh caused burn injuries to three workers. The explosion occurred in a wooded area.

According to early reports, the factory, located around 5 kilometers from Amba Chandan village, had workers producing “sutli” explosives in a shed-like building when there was an explosion, according to Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Umakant Choudhary.
