Patna: At least 20 LPG cylinders exploded on Tuesday at a primary school in Bihar’s Khopira village where food was being cooked for the tehrvi of former Ranveer Sena chief Brahmeshwar Singh alias Mukhiya.
As per reports, 50 cylinders had been kept at the site and blasts are continuing. However, there are no reports of any one getting hurt in the incident.
It is believed that the food was being cooked for nearly 50,000 people, who were supposed to attend the feast on the completion of 13 days of Mukhiya’s death.
The Ranveer Sena chief was killed recently by unidentified gunmen. While Bihar police have arrested several suspects, the mystery has yet to be solved.
