    Pune : One person was killed and two others were injured when a gas tanker exploded at a petrol pump on the Pune-Indapur highway at Varkat village, 120 km from here, police said Sunday.

    “The incident took place late Saturday but we were able to get details only today as rescue operations were in full swing. A car rammed into the gas tanker at the petrol pump, triggering an explosion,” police said.

    A major fire followed the explosion, engulfing the petrol pump. The flames could be brought under control only by Sunday morning. Some vehicles parked near the petrol pump were also gutted in the blaze.

    Police are yet to identify the deceased and those injured.
