Massive explosion took place last year in one Nazir’s house in Darbhanga

On June 5 last year, an explosion took place in the house of a 50-year-old man named Mohammed Nazir in the Azamnagar Durga Temple area of Darbhanga in Bihar. The area, which falls under the jurisdiction of University Thana, was shaken with a loud bang that could be heard as far as 1 kilometre away. The blast was so massive that the walls and roof of Nazir’s house had collapsed completely.

Several members of the family had been injured. Though initial reports claimed that the explosion was due to firecrackers, locals had stated that it had taken place due to illegal bomb manufacturing.
