The three children were first admitted at Gangarampur Super Specialty Hospital. However, one of them had to be shifted to Malda Medical College & Hospital as his condition deteriorated. The other two are undergoing treatment at the hospital at Gangarampur.

The local Lok Sabha member and West Bengal BJP President Sukanta Majumdar said that the police should investigate impartially and unearth the reason behind the explosion.
