Five children aged between three and nine were injured in a blast in Thakwa Nagar, Mutur this morning. The blast occurred while the children were playing with a canister like object they found in the beach.
The injured children were rushed to the Muttur hospital for treatment. The Muttur police are conducting further investigations. (AA, S.Maran & S.S Kumar)
Would have been an unexploded motar or arty round, buried in the sand. The Govt should have a campaign in all schools and public places to educate civilians and children not to play or touch such objects.
