Deadly Blast Claims Lives of 2 Men Crafting Firecrackers at Narela Home.

Tragedy struck in North Delhi on a Saturday when two young guys, Gaurav Kumar, 20, and his buddy Sahil Singh, 21, lost their lives in a home explosion gone wrong. They were trying to whip up some firecrackers in their place at Tikri Khurd village in Narela.

The grim news unfolded when Satyawadi Raja Harish Chandra (SRHC) Hospital dialed the cops on that fateful Saturday. The doctors there sadly confirmed that Gaurav and Sahil had already passed away when they arrived at the hospital late in the night.

The police rushed to the scene and checked out the addresses of the unfortunate pair. They discovered that both friends had sustained burn injuries and were hurried to the hospital by their neighbors and family members.

According to Ravi Kumar Singh, who’s the DCP for the Outernorth area, it seems Gaurav was known for setting up a stall during Diwali and other festive times. He sold items like lamps, cotton, oil lamps, and, of course, firecrackers. At his home, he had stashed some potash and sulfur for the upcoming Diwali celebrations. The explosion seems to have been triggered when these substances accidentally mixed.

Sahil had come over to Gaurav’s place to hang out on that Saturday, and they were busy working on packing materials when the tragic blast happened. Gaurav’s parents were outside the house when the explosion occurred. The police are also talking to family members to gather more information.

In response to the incident, the police are registering a case against unknown individuals under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 285 (dealing carelessly with flammable materials), 286 (handling explosive substances negligently), and 304A (causing death due to negligence).

On Thursday, the Delhi Police reached out to Google to request information regarding the IP address of an email that threatened to bomb North Block in Delhi. The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) office, located in North Block, received the alarming email on Wednesday, causing significant concern. However, after a thorough search, no suspicious items were found, and the threat was determined to be a false alarm, according to official sources.

The Delhi Police Special Cell, alongside local police, is currently investigating the incident. An official indicated that a formal letter has been dispatched to Google, seeking details about the IP address linked to the threatening email sent to the Home Ministry. This email reportedly warned of a bomb placed in the building, which would soon explode.

Further investigation revealed that the email was sent from an anonymous Gmail address, and authorities suspect the sender utilized a VPN to obscure the IP address, complicating efforts to trace its origin. A senior police officer mentioned that a case might be registered at the appropriate police station to facilitate a more detailed investigation.
