Yelahanka: A blast was reported at the Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Limited (KPTCL) Power plant in Yelahanka on Friday, that left 15 engineers with burn injuries.

Fire tenders were rushed to the spot upon receiving the information.

According to local residents of Puttenahalli, the incident took place in the wee hours of Friday at around 3 am.

Nearly 15 engineers have been injured and two of them are critical and are being treated at a government hospital.

One of the senior officials of KPCL said, “It was an unfortunate incident and we would term it rather a freak accident. Despite putting in place all safety measures, the incident happened at the site while testing the gas turbine before its actual commissioning.”

“While 15 personnel including engineers are diagnosed with 10 to 15 per cent burn injuries, one AEE is critical with more than 50 per cent burn injuries. All the injured have been rushed to various private hospitals in different parts of the city and undergoing treatment,” the official clarified.
