At least four persons have been killed and 100 injured after a boiler blast in a state-run NTPC power plant in Raebareli in Uttar Pradesh. A top official says the number of dead and injured may rise. Most of the injured have suffered burns.
Reports say a boiler pipe burst in the power generating unit in the plant in Unchahar, which is nearly 30 years old.
The plant, with five units of 210 MW each, started generating power in 1988.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, taking cognizance of the incident, has directed the Principal Secretary Home to ensure all steps for rescue and relief operations.
