An explosion at an Indian coal-fired power plant operated by state-run NTPC Ltd on Wednesday killed 18 people and injured up to 100 in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, in one of the country's most deadly industrial accidents in recent times.

Among those injured, 22 with severe burn injuries have been sent to the state capital Lucknow for treatment, while 15 are in another hospital within the district, Uttar Pradesh police said on a verified Twitter account.

"Total number of casualties could go up once the blades of the boiler are cut," the state's police said, adding that 18 people have been confirmed dead by the district administration.
