A massive explosion ripped a boiler at the state-run power giant NTPC's Unchahar plant in Uttar Pradesh's Rae Bareli district on Wednesday, killing at least 25 people and injuring nearly 100, officials said.
The NTPC initiated a probe to ascertain the reasons behind the blast, while Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath announced Rs 2 lakh compensation for the families of those killed and Rs 50,000 for the grievously injured, they added. Among those injured are three additional general managers of the NTPC plant, who are undergoing treatment in Lucknow, according to sources.
"Twenty deaths have been confirmed by the district administration. Twenty-two people with severe burns have been referred to Lucknow. Another 15 are admitted to a Rae Bareli hospital," Uttar Pradesh's ADG (Law and Order) Anand Kumar said. He said that the number of casualties could rise.
At least two people were killed and one injured in a shooting inside a Walmart store in suburban Denver on Wednesday, police said.
Police in Thornton, Colorado, did not immediately release any information about the circumstances of the shooting or who was responsible for the gunfire.
With the northeast monsoon hitting the southern coast and heavy rain lashing coastal Tamil Nadu, a minister has said his state is better at managing the rain as compared to the United States and the United Kingdom.
Tamil Nadu's Municipal Administration Minister SP Velumani said on Tuesday, "It rained in Bengaluru recently, earlier it rained in the UK and US and we were told it was flooded everywhere. It shows our action is better than those of developed countries".
