A distressing incident unfolded at a Kalyan Jewellers showroom in Bellary, Karnataka, as a distressing video emerged on social media depicting critically injured individuals being rescued from the premises.

According to news reports, the ordeal was triggered by an air conditioner blast, leaving three people seriously injured, with one individual in critical condition.

The blast, which occurred around 6:30 pm, resulted in severe injuries to several individuals present at the showroom. Disturbing videos circulating on social media platforms depict the chaotic scene as rescue efforts were underway to evacuate the injured from the jewellery shop.

In response to the emergency, the injured were swiftly transported to Vims Hospital in the city for urgent medical attention. The showroom’s window panes were shattered in the explosion, indicating the intensity of the blast. Initial reports suggest that a short circuit may have been the cause of the incident.

Firefighters, accompanied by city DySP, Brucepete circle inspector, and their teams, promptly arrived at the scene to conduct an inspection and ensure the safety of those present. Despite the swift response, the incident attracted a crowd of onlookers, with hundreds gathering at the site.

As investigations into the matter continue, no official statement has been issued by local authorities or the police regarding the cause of the blast. While some media reports speculate that the explosion resulted from a short circuit, the exact circumstances leading to the tragic incident are yet to be determined.

We deeply regret the incident that occurred last evening (May 2nd, 2024) at our Bellary showroom during the maintenance of the air conditioning unit.
