Saligao: The village of Saligao was rocked by a blast of a LPG cylinder this morning, which caused losses of lakhs of rupees.
The house of Pratima Hanumant Velgekar was completely ravaged by the blast today morning around 10 am, at Muddavado Saligao.
Eyewitnesses said the losses were huge as the lady with two kids lost all her belonging along with gold jewellery worth 4 lakhs rupees, which she was preparing for her daughter’s wedding.
“Blast was so strong that entire Muddavado neighborhood felt it like an earthquake. Pieces of tiles and plastic landed 100 meters from the burnt house,” said social worker Ramesh Ghadi.
The villagers have started a initiative to help the lady.
“I am appealing for the help of this family to rebuild their place and get a shelter on their head,” said Ghadi.
