2 Blasts at Benglore Chinnaswamy Stadium

Two blasts, one at M Chinnaswamy Stadium and another half-a-kilometre away, before the start of an Indian Premier League (IPL) 3rd edition T20 match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians on Saturday.

Two Low Intensity Explosives (LIE) placed near the outer wall of the stadium went off at around 3.15pm, 45 minutes prior to the scheduled start of the match, which was delayed by an hour. Four policemen and a private security guard were injured. Another explosion took place at around 3pm near Anil Kumble Circle, less than half-a-kilometer from the stadium.

The police are investigating.
