Bardhhaman (WB): One person was killed and three others were injured when an old refrigerator stacked in a godown burst in Durgapur's Newtownship area today, a police official said.

The official said a mechanic Shankar Keout, who used to repair old refrigerators, had stacked them in a room in the house of one Brahmadeo Majhi which he used as a godown.

Keout had come with four labourers to clean the godown when one of the refrigerators burst. While Pappu Ram (35) died on the spot, Keout and two others were injured and taken to Bardhhaman Medical College and Hospital.

Keout was later detained for questioning and the room sealed off.

Nanda said a forensic team would visit the place tomorrow and examine the cause of the blast.
