The last thing Avdoot Parab remembers before chaos ensued was the ear-splitting sound of a blast. The 44-yearold BPCL technician, who was at the site, saw people around him running and followed them without a thought. “But I fell and fractured my leg,” said Parab at Sushrut Hospital in Chembur, where 22 of the 43 persons injured in the fire were admitted.

The other 21 were treated for minor injuries at BPCL’s primary health centre and sent home.

Shahaji Umap, DCP (zone 6), said two of those admitted at Sushrut Hospital — Sushil Bhosle, 35, who had head injuries, and Nanadip Walwe, 53, with head and arm injuries — were critical. “Some of them sustained fractures, and others were bleeding.” Dr Sanjeevan Kumar Goswamy, the hospital’s superintendent, said none suffered burns.

Shaikh Mohammad Saut, 40, also a technician, was injured when a shrapnel hit him in the face. “He was bleeding from the nose and lips, and lost consciousness. He is recuperating,” said his son, Jainoor Sheikh. Sanjay Sakhare, 37, a helper in BPCL, was similarly injured on the head.
