Bengaluru: “At about 3.15 pm a minor blast has taken place in the wall adjacent to the gate no 12 of the stadium. Four constables were hurt – two were minor injuries. One security guard has been hurt seriously. It appears that some explosives may have been hidden in the wall . There is no cause for panic. The game will go on. The bomb-experts are investigating. Perhaps, the explosives were placed behind a plastic board which was on the board. It was a single-brick wall. The explosives weren’t powerful.” said Mr Shankar Bidari, the city Police Commissioner.
The explosion triggered panic as it came an hour before the start of the IPL match between Royal Challengers, Bangalore and Mumbai Indians.
