Hard to say what caused such a multi-explosion right now, says the chief inspector of the govt body 

The Department of Explosives has formed a three-member committee to investigate the massive explosion which rocked Moghbazar in Dhaka on Sunday evening, killing at least seven people and injuring at least 50 others.

Deputy Chief Explosives Inspector Md Abdul Hannan will lead the committee, which also includes Explosives Inspector (EI) Abdur Rob and Assistant Explosives Inspector (AEI) SM Sakhawat Hossain.

EI Abdur Rob, AEI SM Sakhawat Hossain and Technical Assistant Binoy Kumar have already inspected the spot, said Chief Inspector of Explosives Abul Kalam Azad, reports Bangla Tribune.

When asked if the inspecting officials have reported anything, he said: “The situation is really fragile.  It is hard to say what caused such a multi-explosion right now.”

He added: “Though there are talks about LPG cylinder explosions, AC explosions, gas leaks, and transformer explosions; none of these caused such a massive explosion before”

“It is not possible to say anything right now. The investigation committee will visit the spot again for further  examination [on Monday],” he added.

Deputy Chief Explosives Inspector Md Abdul Hannan said:  "Nothing can be said for sure right now. We will inspect the spot again [on Monday]. It’s not possible to enter the building yet. 

“We will conduct a more thorough investigation, once the city corporation and firefighters have removed some of the debris,” he said. 

The probe body must submit the report within seven working days.
