Explosion in Agra hospital, 6 injured

Agra: An explosion rocked a private hospital here on Saturday leaving six persons injured.

The blast took place in the reception of Jai Hospital where explosives were kept under a chair, said P. K. Tiwari, inspector general of police, Agra Range.

Replying to a question, he said it was too early to say if it was a terror attack.

“I heard a bang sound and when I turned there were splinters of glass lying around and I saw three people injured," the witness told AFP, declining to give his name.

The blast comes less than two weeks after a powerful bomb in a briefcase ripped through a crowd outside Delhi’s high court, killing 15 people and wounding dozens of others, many of them petitioners waiting for legal hearings.
