At their Kathmandu home, a gas cylinder explosion severely burned Nepalese MP Chandra Bhandari and his mother. Hari Kala Bhandari, the lawmaker's mother, passed away from her wounds on Thursday morning, although he will be flown to Mumbai for additional care, the MP's office announced.

“The condition isn't good, Bhandari needs to be taken to a hospital specialised in burns outside the country as treatment is not possible here,” Kirtipur Burns Hospital, said in a statement.

The MP is scheduled to be flown to Mumbai per the hospital's advice. At the National Burns Hospital in Navi Mumbai, he will continue to receive therapy.

An explosion caused by an LPG gas leak injured Bhandari and his mother. While Bhandari only had 25% of his body burned, his mother had roughly 80% of her body burned.
