Tirupati: Ten workers were killed in a blast at a barytes quarry near Mamillapalli village under Kalasapadu mandal in Kadapa district of Andhra Pradesh on Saturday. The explosion occurred while workers were unloading gelatin sticks from a vehicle for use in the quarry. Police said though the quarry operator had obtained permission to run the unit, he was allegedly mining outside the prescribed boundaries assigned to him.

The impact of the blast was so powerful that the bodies were blown to pieces and lay strewn all over. Police struggled to identify the dead as they were beyond recognition. No one was injured in the blast.

As the bodies were strewn all over, police were forced to take the help of the workers’ family members who managed to identify the deceased with the clothes on the bodies. The severed parts were collected and sent to the local government hospital for forensic experts to put together.
