Hyderabad: The Cyberabad police which is probing the case of the death of a person in an explosion at a footpath in Rajendranagar near the PVNR Expressway, is suspecting the blast would have been of high intensity which led to the piercing of pieces of plastic into the victim's body.
The explosion took place on the pavement of the service road located between pillars 279 and 280 of PVNR Expressway on the Shivarampally-Aramghar road at around 10.45 am on Sunday. Syed Khaja Ali, 40, a ragpicker living in the area, suffered grievous injuries and died while undergoing treatment at Osmania Hospital.
The Cyberabad police collected the footage of around 30 CCTV cameras installed in the vicinity to analyse and identify from where Ali had picked up the bag that exploded.
The remnants including the pieces of metal and plastic recovered from the spot were sent to the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) on Monday. The police found that some pieces of plastic had entered the body of the victim and were recovered during the post-mortem examination.
“Around six pieces of plastic were recovered from the body. It appears that the explosive content, which was identified as organic chemical liquid solvent, was present in the box made of plastic,” said a senior official from the Cyberabad police said.
Responding to a query, the official said: “The explosion appears to have taken place due to the high pressure developed in the box, due to which the pieces of plastic entered the body of the victim.”
Teams are working on the clues to identify from where Ali picked up the bag containing the box with solvent and how it ended up there, the official said, adding that they are hopeful of receiving the report from the FSL in a week....
