Police said the boy was collecting the unused
cartridge of the army near a test firing range at Sukanjuli
on the Indo-Bhutan border when the blast occured.
Locals collect unused cartridges from the range site
and sell them in the local market as there is demand for the
copper contained in it.
Rangiya (Assam): A seven year-old boy
died in an accidental cartridge blast in Assam's Baksa
district on Sunday.
