Rangiya (Assam): A seven year-old boy died in an accidental cartridge blast in Assam's Baksa district on Sunday.

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.
