Bengaluru: Six workers were injured in an explosion in a molten plastic paint machine near the underpass of the second terminal of the Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru on Monday.

It is said that two of the six workers, Ajay Kumar and Siraj are critical after suffering over 40 per cent burns.

The others workers identified as Avinash, Goutam, Prashanth, Nagesh have been admitted to Victoria Hospital.

Firefighters arrived at the scene and doused the fire.

The workers were deployed for painting the zebra crossing stripes and signage on the roads leading to the airport terminal. It is said that they were using a thermoplastic road marking machine.

Although the exact cause of the explosion is not known, cops claim that a “substantial amount” of paint vapor and mist could have been released causing the accident.
