Ten people including six of a family were injured in an underground indoor water tank explosion in a building in Pallabi area in the capital last Tuesday night.

Fire service officials suspected that gas from a leaked pipe beneath the tank caused the explosion at the six-storey building in block-E of Mirpur 12.
