Two killed, many ‘injured’ in Ludhiana district court complex explosion

Ludhiana 23 Dec:- At least two people were dead in an explosion reported from a district court complex of Ludhiana, located near the police commissionerate office, while Many were injured. The blast took place in the washroom on the second floor at around 12.22 pm. The second floor of the building houses eight courtrooms, but not many people were present on Thursday because of a strike. The police have cordoned off the area, and the court premises is being vacated. One of the injured has been identified as advocate RS Mand.
According to reports, the lawyers were on strike, and that’s why the number of lawyers present on the premises on Thursday was fewer than any other day. It is not yet known whether the blast was from any cylinder as the second floor also houses the court’s canteen. But as the explosion took place inside the washroom, a cylinder blast might not have been the case.
“I am going to Ludhiana. Some anti-national elements are doing such acts as Assembly elections are nearing. So the government is on alert. Those found guilty will not be spared,” chief minister Charanjit Singh Channi said.
After the district court explosion, all government offices will be thoroughly checked in a security overhaul.(The Awam News)
