Bengaluru, Dec 5 (IANS) A research scholar died and three others were injured in a hydrogen cylinder blast at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) here on Wednesday, police said.
Research scholar Manoj Kumar (23) succumbed to severe burns after a hydrogen cylinder exploded in the Institute's aerospace department laboratory during an experiment, Additional Commissioner of Police B.K. Singh told reporters here.
Three of the victim's injured colleagues were rushed to a private hospital.
"The incident occurred late in the afternoon in the department lab when the team was conducting an experiment in hypersonic shock waves," said Singh.
Police have registered a case against the state-run institute to ascertain the cause of the blast.
