KOCHI: Five persons were killed and many others injured in a blast inside an Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) tanker at the Cochin Shipyard here on Tuesday, police said.

The deceased have been identified as Kottayam native Gavin, Vypin native Ramshad, Kochi native Unnikrishnan, Eroor native Kannan and Alappuzha native Jain. Abhilash, Sachu, Jaison, Sreerup, Christie, Tintu and Rajeev are the ones who sustained injuries. All of the injured are under treatment at the Medical Trust Hospital.

Those working at the time of the blast mostly included daily labourers and contract workers. Tuesday being a holiday, no regular workers of the shipyard were present.

The blast took place around 10.30 am in the water tank of the berthed ONGC tanker Sagar Bhushan when some 20 workers were working in the tanker ship.

The Sagar Bhushan has been docked at the Cochin Shipyard for a month for repairs and maintenance. High ranking police and top shipyard officials have reached the accident site.

Speaking to the media, Kochi City Police Commissioner M P Dinesh said: "The death toll from the blast includes some who apparently choked on the smoke after the explosion.

A probe has been ordered, Dinesh said.

The ship that arrived from Mumbai is 56 years old.

The shipyard is commercial and it takes care of maintenance and construction of ships. It’s the ships of the Navy, Coast Guard and ONGC’s merchant navy ships that arrive at the Kochi shipyard for maintenance works.
