Deodorants contain highly flammable substances. When exposed to even a small spark, these substances can lead to a substantial explosion. This is believed to be a contributing factor that made the mobile blast particularly dangerous. Currently, the entire incident is under investigation. The injured individuals have been promptly taken to the hospital for medical treatment.

Experts advise against leaving phones on charge overnight, as prolonged charging can lead to overheating, substantially increasing the risk of a potential explosion. It is crucial for individuals to be vigilant and adopt safe charging practices to prevent such incidents in the future.
