Transformer blast injures five people in India

India: Five employees of two private firms were injured when a power transformer caught fire and oil from it splashed on them on a city street.

VN Singh, chief engineer of Pashchimanchal Vidyut Vitaran Nigam Limited (PVVNL), said he had received information that there was some fault in the transformer. “There was some leakage from the unit, which led to the blast. I have sought a report from the executive engineer. We will take action if any negligence is found,” he said.

Noida police said they have not received any complaint in this regard as yet.
