Eight people were injured in an explosion in Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag district on Wednesday, police said.
However, police ruled out any terror angle, saying the blast occurred in a “load carrier” vehicle carrying a concrete vibration machine, a portable generator and a can of oil.
“An explosion occurred in the cement mix settling vibration machine, adjacent portable generator, and tin can of oil being carried with labourers in a load carrier at Larkipora Anantnag,” Kashmir Zone Police said in a post on X.
Eight labourers sustained burn injuries, and they are being treated at a hospital, police said.
“All stable. No terrorist angle was observed. Investigation started,” police said in the post.
