Lyf smartphone explodes, family narrowly escapes

Kashmir, Nov 7 (IBNS): A Kashmiri man and his family had a narrow escape recently after his Lyf handset exploded.

Reliance Retail launched its Lyf brand of smartphones in India this year; the phones are available with free Reliance Jio SIM and its preview offer.

Tanvir Sadiq, whose Twitter bio reads, 'political secretary to the working president of JKNC', posted three pictures of his damaged Lyf handset.

"My family had a narrow escape today after @reliancejio 's @Reliance_LYF phone exploded & burst into flames," he tweeted.

In a subsequent tweet, the user asked people to be careful while using their phones.

"All those people who have this @Reliance_LYF phone need to be very cautious and careful @reliancejio," he added.

Following his tweet, the handset company said that they have started an investigation.

"@tanvirsadiq As discussed we are investigating on this. We will get back to you with further updates," a tweet from Lyf's official Twitter handle read.

Reacting to the news, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah tweeted, "Glad everyone is safe Tanvir. This looks like it was a very narrow escape. I won't be using my handset anytime soon, that's for sure."
