An explosion in Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag district today left eight laborers injured, according to police.
However, authorities have ruled out any terrorist involvement, attributing the blast to a “load carrier” vehicle transporting a concrete vibration machine, a portable generator, and a can of oil.
The incident took place at Larkipora in Anantnag, where an explosion occurred within the cement mix settling vibration machine, alongside a portable generator and a tin can of oil, all of which were being transported with the laborers in the load carrier.
The injured laborers, who sustained burn injuries, are currently receiving treatment at a hospital. The police have initiated an investigation into the matter.
