According to the Indian Embassy in Khartoum, more than 50 Indians worked in the 'Seela' ceramics factory in the Bahri region, the capital of Khartoum, when the LPG tanker explosion occurred on Tuesday night.

The Embassy also explained that some of the missing people might be on the list of dead people we would still receive. Identification of the corpse is very unlikely because most corpses suffered severe burn injuries.

The embassy listed seven Indians being treated at Al Amal hospital in Bahri, Khartoum, including three at the ICU.

In addition, the embassy also lists 16 Indians missing, and 34 Indians who survived the accident.

Most Indians come from Bihar, UP, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Tamil Nadu.
