A labour contractor, who was absconding following an explosion near a Central Ammunition Depot (CAD) in Maharashtra's Wardha district, has been arrested, police said.
An explosion during unloading of ammunition boxes killed six persons and injured 12 on November 20. Among the deceased, five were contractual workers.
A case under IPC section 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) was registered against Chandok on the same day and since then he was absconding, said inspector Thakur.
He will be produced before a local court, the officer added.
