Bengaluru: Nine individuals from a family including four kids, suffered serious burns after a fire blazed as a result of cylinder gas leak in Kalyan Nagar in Peenya on Thursday.

The injured have been identified as Devaraj (38) a security guard at a private company, his better half Lakshmama (35) and their two children Niranjan (10) and Devika (4), alongside five of their relatives Venkatesh (38), Maheswari (33), Alavelu (9), Somashekar (16) and Sangeetha (15). Seven casualties are out of danger while Somashekar and Lakshmamma who managed 70% consumes, are in a critical state, said Basavaraj Naik, a family companion. 

The police said that five of Devaraj’s and Lakshmamma’s relatives from Pavagada including two children (Somashekar and Sangeetha), had gone to their home on Wednesday to go to a relative’s wedding. They were staying at the Chickanjanappa Building in Kalyan Nagar fourth Main.

On Wednesday night, the family and relatives ate and rested while Devaraj left for his night duty. Lakshmamma neglected to turn off the gas regulator after cooking and wen to sleep. Toward the beginning of the day around 4.30, when Devaraj came back from work and thumped at the door, Lakshmamma woke up and switched on the light. The spark from the switch ignited the leaked gas from the cylinder. “The room had no ventilation and the cylinder was kept in their room adjoining the kitchen due to vaastu,” Naik said.
