Nov 19, 2020 18:58 IST

Five people were killed and five others critically injured in a blast in a plastic factory in West Bengal's Malda district on Thursday. Preliminary investigation has found that a technical fault in a heavy machine inside the factory caused the high-intensity blast. A huge police contingent has been deployed at the spot to keep the situation under control. The Mamata Banerjee government has announced an ex-gratia of ₹2 lakh each for the kin of the deceased and ₹50,000 each for the injured.
