Bengaluru: Shahrukh Khan, a 25-year-old painter from LR Nagar in Adugodi lost his sight when a lit rocket came out of nowhere and hit his left eye, causing a grievous injury. Khan was admitted to the government-run Minto Ophthalmic Hospital, which received four other cases of cracker-related injuries. All the injured are boys and are aged between the ages of seven and seventeen.

Mithun, a seven-year-old, has also been admitted to Minto Hospital for injuries on his face and eyes. It is said that he was leaning over a half-burnt ‘flower pot’ when it went off in his face.

The three others — Bhavesh (10), Manjunath (42) and Pradeep Kumar (14) — who have suffered corneal burns were by-standers.

Narayana Nethralaya has received 11 cases of cracker-related injuries this year while Vijaya Nethralaya and Nethradhama got two patients each who hurt their eyes while lighting crackers. Shankara Eye Hospital received one case of cracker-related eye injury.
