The Madhya Pradesh Human Rights Commission (MPHRC) has taken cognisance of the blast at Petlawad in Jhabua, and has begun a probe into the incident.

The commission has decided to conduct an independent probe on the basis of media reports about the incident.

The commission has felt that procedures were not followed in handing over licence and the place where the explosives were kept, was not in accordance with the norms that must be observed for a place where explosives are to be kept.

The failure to adhere to the norms, led to deaths of so many people including women and children, for no fault of their own, feel officials at the rights panel.

A team of police officers who are posted with the MPHRC, are being sent to Jhabua. Further, an officer of Additional Director General of Police (ADG), with the rights panel, would be heading this probe.
