When the neutral is connected to ground and if any unbalance occurs in the circuit then the place where neutral is grounded leads to a spark and there are chances of breakdown of all the loads connected on that particular phase.

For ex. If there is an un-balance load on B-Phase then the entire load on B-Phase gets burned.

No because when unbalance current flow through neutral short circuit occurs at that point where neutral grounded
