Pune Crime News | Illegal sale of domestic LPG cylinders proves costly: One of three injured succumbs to burns at Sassoon Hospital


PUNE: Pune Crime News | Illegal sale of LPG cylinders at Malwadi in Kirkitwadi on Sinhagad Road proved costly as a shopkeeper’s daughter died due to burn injuries at the Sassoon Hospital. The deceased has been identified as Gita Munnaram Chowdhary (15), a resident of Kirkitwadi. Munnaram Chowdhary (45) and his younger daughter are being treated at Sassoon Hospital.

Munnaram Chowdhary has a grocery shop at Malwadi in Kirkitwadi. He used to sell LPG cylinders from the shop. He had rented a godown where he used to illegally transfer LPG from big to small cylinders and sell them.

When Munnaram Chowdhary and his two daughters were filling LPG in small cylinders from big cylinders on June1, there was a leakage of gas and a fire broke out. Munnaram Chowdhary and his two daughters were seriously injured.

Since they were seriously injured, they were admitted to Sassoon Hospital instead of being admitted to a private hospital. His elder daughter Geeta (15) died during treatment. Munnaram Chowdhary and his younger daughter’s condition is serious. The illegal and dangerous sale of domestic LPG cylinders has come to the fore.

LPG cylinders are supplied in Kirkitwadi through three-four agencies. The vehicles of these agencies are moving about in the area. It has to be probed which employees of an agency were illegally supplying LPG cylinders to Munnaram Chowdhary.

The distributors tell the common man that there are no cylinders and supply cylinders at a higher price to illegal sellers. It should be probed whether anyone else is also indulging in this trade.

Sachin Wangde, PI of Haveli police station, said that they have not received any information about the incident as the injured were directly admitted to Sassoon Hospital. He said the details will be known after a post is received. He added that he has instructed policemen to begin a probe since this is a serious matter.
