Three children of a primary school in south Bangalore suffered minor injuries on Friday morning following an accidental blast in a classroom of the school.
The blast occurred at the Sri Sadhguru Sai Baba school at Roopena Agrahara near Madivala after a few boys connected detonators they had found to a power socket in the class.
The boys claimed to have found the material in a waste dump near the school. Police suspect that the electric detonator material was dumped in a garbage bin by persons who may have been using it for illegal quarrying.
Three students of class four of the school were injured. The detonator was found by a class four student of the school.
