Jabalpur (Madhya Pradesh): The National Investigation Agency sleuths started investigations in Jabalpur scrapyard blast, alongside officers from the OFK, COD, SDRF, and local police.

The blast occurred at a scrapyard owned by Raza Metal Industry on Thursday. Preliminary reports suggested a gas cylinder exploded during welding, however, presence of a significant quantity of explosive materials at the scrapyard is suspected.

The special teams are investigating as to how bombs, typically used by the military, made their way into the scrap collection process.

Following the blast, the police swiftly sealed off the area as a precautionary measure. During the inspection, authorities discovered a severed hand and a chunk of flesh from under the debris. While two others, including Bholu Kevat, a resident of the nearby Indrana, were missing, said Additional SP Sonali Dubey.

CCTV footage obtained from the vicinity captured the moment of the explosion, providing crucial evidence for the ongoing investigation. Thick plumes of smoke flowed into the sky immediately after the blast which was clearly visible from a distance.

At the time of the incident, approximately ten individuals were present at the scene, adding complexity to the investigation.
