GUWAHATI, July 30 � The State government is still in a fix over the kerosene explosions and sale of kerosene has been banned in three districts of the State following the series of explosions.
Official sources said that sale of kerosene has been banned in the districts of Goalpara, Dhubri and Kokrajhar and the Deputy Commissioners of all the districts have been directed to go for a probe whenever such an incident occurs.
Sources said that samples of kerosene were collected from different sources and the same have been sent to the Forensic Science Laboratory. The government would be able to ascertain the real reason for the explosions only after receiving the laboratory reports, sources added.
The State government got in touch with the Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) in this regard but the oil company also could not ascertain the cause of the recent phenomenon of explosions and now the future course of action would depend only on the test reports, sources added.
