Mysuru: At least four persons, including Suttur Mutt seer Shivaratri Deshikendra Swami and MLC Marithibbegowda, were injured when a bunch of nitrogen balloons burst over their head on Tuesday afternoon.

The freak accident took place during the inaugural ceremony of a wrestling tournament organised at Suttur, which is located on the banks of river Kapila in Nanjangud taluk in Mysuru.

The baboons, which were part of the decorations at the venue, caused a blast after the flames of sports torch accidentally touched them.

Suttur Mutt is a powerful Mutt in the region as it wields tremendous influence over the Lingayat-Veerashaiva community.

The injured were rushed to a hospital in Suttur and are currently under observation.
