Shaw said that he runs a snacks shop from his house and lives with the family. The shop has been shut for past two months due to the lockdown. At around 2 a.m., when Shaw was sleeping on the roof while his daughter with the infant boy were sleeping on the ground floor, the explosion took place. It damaged the house completely killing mother and son.
