Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh government on Tuesday said it had constituted a one-member commission to enquire into the Petlawad explosion incident.

Retired High Court judge Justice Aryendra Kumar Saxena is the chairman of the Commission. Its headquarters will be at Indore and it will submit report in three months, an official release said.

The Commission will find out, among other things, the circumstances under which the explosion took place, who was responsible for it and whether the landlord or the tenant had the license to store or use explosives.

At least 89 people were killed and nearly 100 injured after a massive blast caused by mining explosives stored in a building ripped through a crowded area in Petlawad town in Jhabua district.
