Police, who are investigating the blast at Pedana railway station that killed a seven-year-old boy on August 2, suspect it could have been due to the presence of unused crackers and other inflammable materials in the garbage dump. According to police, Idris, who is undergoing treatment at the Machilipatnam Government Hospital for the injuries sustained in the blast, has stated that Rafi, the deceased, had brought a packet and lit it, causing the explosion.Speaking to The Hindu on Monday, Krishna Superintendent of Police G. Vijay Kumar said police had recorded Idris’ statement.“After returning from school, Rafi brought a packet from the house of Nancharamma who lives in the locality. We both went out to play.

it into the garbage dump,” Idris told the SP. The officer confirmed that the crackers seized from nearby houses and samples collected from the blast site almost matched. “Had the blast been triggered by detonators or some other powerful materials, the impact would have been much higher,” he said. Meanwhile, police have sent the samples to the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL), Hyderabad, for examination.
