Mumbai: A seven-year-old child died after a firecracker exploded in his mouth in Maharashtra's Buldhana district, police said on Thursday.

The incident took place at Pimpalgaon village under the Raipur Police Station limits on Tuesday evening, an official said.

The boy, Yash Sanjay Gavate, was bursting crackers with his friends ahead of Diwali, he said.

He picked up a `Sutli Bomb', which had not exploded, thinking it had not been lit. As he playfully bit it, the cracker went off causing serious injuries to the boy, the police official said.

Yash was declared dead on arrival at the nearby government hospital, the official added.
