The death toll in the twin LPG cylinder blasts at Himshikha Colony in Pinjore reached six today with the death of Abhimanyu, a 28-year-old neighbour of the house owner, at a private hospital here.

Abhimanyu was a nephew of Vikas Bhardwaj, alias Boxer, who also died of injuries at the PGI two days after the incident on Thursday. Neighbours said Abhimanyu had been living with his maternal grandfather at Pinjore since childhood after the death of his father. When Boxer rushed to the spot, Abhimanyu followed him and started rescuing the family members of the house owner and got injured in a blast.

Sachin Bansal and Vikas Bansal, and their father Kishan Pal Bansal, the owner of the house, had died at the PGI last week. Yogesh, another neighbour of the Bansals, also died of burn injuries yesterday.
