Explosion in Goa’s Madgaon, 1 killed and 4 injured

PANAJI: Police investigating into the blast case at Sao Jose de Areal, in south Goa in which one person was killed and four others injured, said that it was country-made crude bomb that caused the explosion. DGP Goa T N Mohan said it was a low-intensity crude bomb.

Investigators are baffled as to what he was doing with the crude bombs as more such explosives were found in the house. "Around 30 such bombs were there in the house", an official said. Crude bomb making material was also found in the house.

Police sources said that the man whose name is given as Paplu Mulgund, was carrying the crude bomb when it exploded as he was entering the house. He was staying in the house with his family, on rent for nearly a month. No tenant verification had been done, the police said. The deceased was around 32 years old.

A senior police officer said that they are low-intensity crude bombs mainly used to kill wild animals or for fishing.

Besides the DGP Goa T N Mohan, DIG O P Mishra and SP (Crime) Karthik Kashyak visited the spot and took stock of the situation. The bomb disposal squad is at the site. Police have cordoned off the area as heavy rains lash the state.
