Explosion in a bus in Haryana, 2 injured

Fatehabad: An explosion took place on Tuesday in a private bus at Bhuna in Fatehabad, Haryana, leaving two persons injured. Reportedly, the blast occurred at around 11am when the bus was going from Jakhal to Fatehabad. SP O P Narwal said “Two persons including a woman have been injured in the explosion. They have been taken to Fatehabad hospital.

They have been identified as Bhagirath Luhar and his wife Raj Bala of Kanoh village near here.

The incident comes two weeks after a low-intensity blast took place in a state-run bus near Pipli in Kurukshetra, leaving 12 passengers injured. “It could be possible that some farmer was carrying the chemical powder, which is used in agricultural fields to scare away birds by causing an explosion,” Narwal said.

Narwal said according to preliminary accounts gathered from the spot, it appeared some passenger was carrying a chemical powder which caught fire either because of smoking or some other reason.
