A massive explosion took place in a gas tanker in Chakan area of Pimpri Chinchwad of Pune district in Maharashtra in the wee hours of Sunday, reported the ANI.


The intensity of the explosion was so high that it damaged nearby hotels, houses and parked trucks.


No causalities have been reported in the incident, the officials said, as per the ANI.


According to the reports, the primary reason for the explosion was the illegal refilling of the gas in the tanker, which caused damage to the nearby areas.

DCP of Pimpri Chinchwad Police, Shivaji Pawar, said, "In the morning, in a Chakan area of Pimpri Chinchwad, an explosion occurred, which was so massive that it damaged nearby parked trucks and areas. The primary possible reason for the explosion is illegal refilling of the gas in the tanker," according to the ANI.

"There is no need to worry, as no causalities have been reported so far. We are further investigating the matter," he added.

A case has been registered, and police are further investigating the incident.

Cases will be registered against the father of a teen, who was driving a luxury car when it got involved in a fatal accident in Pune, and the bar that "served the boy liquor", a police official said on Sunday, reported the PTI.

Meanwhile, in an another incident, two persons were killed when the speeding luxury car hit their motorcycle in the city on Sunday, police said.

The 17-year-old car driver was detained after a case was registered against him. He was produced in a juvenile court which granted him bail, they said.

"In the accident case, the father of the accused and the bar which served liquor to the juvenile/accused are being proceeded against under sections 75 and 77 of the Juvenile Justice Act," Pune City Commissioner of Police Amitesh Kumar said in a statement, according to the PTI.

As per section 75 of the Juvenile Justice Act, a person with actual control or charge of a child can be punished if he assaults, abandons or neglects the child wilfully, and abuses him, causing mental or physical illness. Section 77 pertains to giving liquor or drugs to a child.

The accident took place around 3.15 am in Kalyani Nagar when a group of friends after a party at a restaurant in the area was returning home on their motorbikes.
