At least 30 persons were feared killed and another 100 injured in explosions in two factories of the Bairhan Industrial Area in Singrauli on Sunday evening. Police said the first explosion occurred in the Ideal Explosives Industries at around 6.30 pm.

This triggered an explosion in the neighbouring Rajasthan Explosives Private Limited as well.

The explosions were so severe that both the factories were reduced to rubble, under which 30 people were feared dead, they said. Relief and rescue operations are on in the Industrial Area and officials say the death toll may mount.
