The injured were taken to hospital where one of them is critical, Superintendent of Police Anup Kumar Sahu said. Police have detained the house owner for questioning.

The state government announced compensation of Rs.1 lakh to the kin of each of those killed. Those who sustained injuries are being provided necessary treatment by the state government, free of cost.
