Pune, Jun 15 (PTI)
Two persons were on Thursday killed in an explosion at the ordnance factory in Khadki in Pune while they were shifting small arms and ammunition

Defence sources said the blast occurred at around 9.30 am when "rejected ammunition" was being shifted

The deceased, identified as Ashok Dubal (48) and Yash Maria Rock (50), were workers of the ordnance factory

This is the second such incident in less than four months. In March, nearly 20 people were injured in an explosion in the Ordnance Factory Khamaria (OFK) in Jabalpur

Sources said there was no other injury or damage to any structure reported

In May last year, 19 people, including two army officers, were killed in a fire in the force's ammunition depot in Pulgoan in Maharashtra.
