Hyderabad, Nov 23 (PTI) Eleven migrant labourers were injured after a cooking gas cylinder exploded in a three-storied building at Nanakramguda area here early on Tuesday morning. Preliminary investigation suggested that the blast was due to a leak in the LPG cylinder on the ground floor of the building rented by some labourers, police said. Eleven people sustained injuries. All migrant labourers, working in nearby construction sites and other places, hail from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and other states. The injured were shifted to different hospitals and the condition of two of them remains critical as they suffered more than 50 per cent burns, they said.
