NTPC boiler blast: Death toll rises to 32

The death toll in the NTPC's Unchahar plant mishap has risen to 32 and the panel set up to look into the cause of the accident will come out with its report in a month, the power producer's chairman and managing director Gurdeep Singh said on Friday.

"Death toll 32 so far... Panel headed by Executive Director S K Roy looking into the cause of the accident will submit its report in a month," said Singh during an interaction with reporters here.

Terming the boiler plant blast "the rarest kind of incident," the NTPC chairman and managing director said people maintaining the unit were the most experienced.

He added that it will take nearly 3-6 months to put the unit back on track.
