NEW DELHI, Sept 13 : Police were hunting on Sunday for a suspect who illegally stored explosives in a restaurant building in central India that sparked a deadly blast, killing 104 people and injuring nearly 100.
The blast occurred in the town of Petlawad in Madhya Pradesh state's Jhabua district Saturday morning when many office workers and schoolchildren were having breakfast in the restaurant and scores of labourers waited at a crowded bus stand near the building.
"The official death toll is 88, but the actual number may be higher, nearly 100. That will be confirmed soon," senior Jhabua district police official Seema Alava told AFP by phone, adding that about 100 others were injured and rescue operations had been wrapped up.      ?AFP
