Dhaka: An underground gas pipeline explosion near a mosque in Bangladesh killed around 17 people and injured 37 with critical burns, said officials on Saturday, as reported by Aljazeera.
The explosion, that is suspected to be due to leakage from the pipeline as per the fire officials, occurred on Friday night at Baitus Salat Jame Mosque in Narayanganj district, outside the capital Dhaka.
“We primarily suspect that gas leaked from the pipeline and accumulated inside the mosque since the windows were shut. When the air conditioners was turned on, due to sparks the gas could have exploded,” said Abdullah Al Arefin, a senior fire service official.
Dozens were rushed to a state-run specialised burn and plastic-surgery hospital.
Samanta Lal Sen, coordinator of burn the unit said that by Saturday afternoon almost 17 people, including a seven-year-old boy, died after sustaining burn injuries.
“I saw smoke was belching out of the mosque after the sudden explosion with a big bang and people were screaming. Some were rolling on the street as they tried to put out the flames on their bodies,” Mohammad Ratan, a local resident, said.
As per local TV stations, at least six air conditioners also exploded in the mosque due to the blast.
However, authorities have launched a probe into the blast.
In the nation of 168million people, hundreds are killed every year with similar incidents.
