Blast in Bengaluru

December 29, 2014


NEW DELHI: A blast rattled the southern Indian city of Bengaluru on Sunday, injuring two people, a police official said.

It was not immediately clear what had caused the low-intensity explosion outside a restaurant in a commercial part of the city, formerly known as Bangalore. A police bomb squad was at the scene.

“There has been an explosion outside a popular restaurant. No one has been killed,” Prashant Rao, a police officer in the emergency control room, said.

Rao said officials of the anti-terrorism National Investigation Agency had reached the site and the blast site was cordoned off.

At least 13 people were wounded in a powerful blast in Bengaluru in 2013.
