Mumbai: 7-Year Old Boy Dies As Electric Scooter Battery Blasts At Home; Family Moves Court

Since the onset of 2022, electric scooter battery fires have been frequent across India. A new case reported from Vasai confirms the death of a 7-year-old.

An electric scooter battery exploded while being charged in the Vasai area of this district on Sunday. A 7-year-old boy sleeping with his grandmother in the hallway of his home passed away after succumbing to burn injuries allegedly caused by the explosion. 

The kid was transported to a hospital after the tragedy, where he died from his injuries.

After being transported to a private hospital, the boy fought for ten days before breathing his last on Monday.

Shabbir Shahnawaz has been named as the deceased. According to the police, a case has been filed at the Manikpur police station.

Vasai driver filed a claim for compensation with a consumer court on Monday, three days after his son allegedly died after the battery of an electric scooter being charged at his home exploded.

Even as the Manikpur police confirmed they would look into whether the death was caused by a faulty battery or overheating, the father moved consumer court, seeking compensation for the trauma caused by the tragedy. 

According to Shahanawaz, the incident happened at his home in a residential building in Vasai’s Ram Das Nagar area on September 23 between 4.30 am and 5 am. 

While the authorities stated that it was unclear when the battery was kept for charging and suggested that battery overheating could have contributed to the explosion, the family noted that the battery was kept for charging at 2.30 am.

While Shahanawaz and his wife slept in the bedroom, his son Shabbir, age 7, was sleeping in the hallway with his grandma. 

While his grandma only sustained minor wounds, Shabbir was brought to the hospital with over 70% burn injuries, where he sadly died on Friday night.

Shahanawaz had plugged in the battery of his electric scooter to charge it. They were awakened by an explosion a few hours later.
