School boy killed in an explosion in Roorkee

A school boy was killed today when an object that he picked up from a garbage heap exploded at Roorkee town in Haridwar district, police said.

The boy, aged about 12 years, was returning from school along with two of his friends when the incident occurred, ADG (law and order) Ram Singh Meena said.

Though investigations are underway, it seems that the boy picked up an object from a garbage heap along the roadside and began playing with it when suddenly it exploded.

All senior police officials from Haridwar including SSP Sweety Aggrawal have rushed to the spot along with a bomb disposal squad to find out what sort of an explosive device it was whether a firecracker or a bomb, he said.
