Mysterious explosions: Guj govt sets up tents

Vadodara: The Gujarat government has asked Porbandar district officials to set up 100 tents in Advana village after locals decided to stay outdoors for the past 20-odd days due to "mysterious explosions."

District incharge Vinay Vyasa said he went to the village to take stock of the situation yesterday and that he has intructed officials to set up hundred tents there.

The cause of the explosion is not known yet. It sounded like earthquake or it could even be a bomb blast, he said.

R Odedara, principal of a primary school in the village said, "Children have to sit under the trees in the compound of the school for the ongoing terminal examination. People from the village have been sleeping in open due to these mysterious explosions as fear has gripped them."
