At least 50 people have been injured in an air conditioner (AC) blast in Narayanganj Sadar.

The incident took place at Baitul Salat Jame Mosque in West Talla of Fatulla at around 9pm on Friday night during Esha prayer. 

Abdullah Al Arefin, assistant director of Narayanganj Fire Service and Civil Defence, said, “A gas line passes beneath the mosque and we are primarily suspecting that gas had leaked from the line and since the windows were shut gas accumulated inside the mosque. When the air conditioner was turned on, due to sparks the gas might have exploded,"
