Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde also visited the fire spot hours after the incident. He directed the district collector of Thane to conduct a high-level inquiry and initiate stern action against culprits in the Dombivali MIDC industrial blast case.

Shinde announced an aid of Rs 5 Lakh to the kin of the deceased ones in the tragic incident. He also stated that the inquiry will be done whether industrial safety units have done their job of safety audit from time to time or not.

“No compromise will be done with the life of people,” the chief minister told journalists. “We have decided to shift hazardous companies outside human colonies. We suggest hazardous companies change their line of business. We can run IT and engineering companies here in the MIDC.”
