The Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) will probe the explosion that ripped through a scrap shop here yesterday, killing four people, a senior police official said here today.

The probe has been handed over to STF and a case under various sections of IPC was registered against one of the deceased Nisar and shop owner Nawajish who was also killed in the blast, SSP Anant Dev said.

The blast, which took place yesterday in the town's Sarvat Road area, also killed Tazim (50) and Shazad (55), who were handling the scrap.

Three more people who happened to be going past the shop at the time of the explosion were injured and taken to hospital.
