Kollam temple fire: Team to assess damage caused by Kerala tragedy today

Thiruvananthapuram: A team of experts will on Thursday study the destruction caused to civilian property due to the deadly fireworks show at a temple in Kollam.

Three Kerala ministers - Adoor Prakash, Shibhu Baby John and VS Sivakumar - will head the team. They will meet people and get a detailed report prepared to know the full extent of destruction to civilian property in and around the premises of the Puttingal Devi temple at Paravur town.

 

This would help the state government take necessary steps to address the issue.
 

 

At least 113 people have been killed and scores injured after a huge stock of firecrackers went up in flames in the temple premises early on the morning of Sunday.

 

Residents say numerous houses in a one-kilometre radius suffered damage of varying kinds. Fifteen were badly damaged.
