Eight people were severely injured when an LPG cylinder exploded at a gas service agency in Kadirenahalli near Banashankari II Stage, South Bengaluru, on Sunday evening.

The incident occurred at PNT Gas Agency, owned by one Pyaare Jaan. The store undertakes repairs of gas stoves and cylinders. The injured have been identified as Imran, Irfan, Rehan, Danish, Sharath, Imran Pasha, Chhote Lal Yadav and Rahul Yadav and are undergoing treatment. Irfan has been working at the shop for the past 10 years.

Chhote Lal and Rahul had come to the store to fix a leaking cylinder which exploded all of a sudden, said the jurisdictional Kumaraswamy Layout police.

"We heard a big noise around 7 pm. When we rushed out of our home, we saw the shop up in flames. We immediately called the police, the fire brigade and the ambulance," said Manjunath, an eyewitness.
