Bomb blast at Chennai Central Station - reportedly one killed. Sad !

1st May 2014 has opened on a wrong note for Chennai, and citizens of India

Sun TV reports  of bomb explosion in compartments of Bangalore – Guwahati Express when it reached Chennai this morning. The report states that a woman belonging to Guntur was killed and a few others injured – of whom 2 are grievously injured.

Right now, Central Station reportedly is cordoned off – it is the time not to spread rumours .......... but only tell people not to visit Chennai  Central unnecessarily ~ and if scheduled for a travel – check on the arrival / departure of trains.

Firstpost reports the explosion to be a minor one and had reportedly taken place on platform number 9 where the Guwahati express had been berthed. Initial reports indicate that the explosion may have been aboard the train. Police teams from across the city have been rushed to the spot trying to ascertain the exact reason behind the explosion. The railway station has been shut down for the moment. The injured have been rushed to the nearby Rajiv Gandhi hospital for treatment.

Sad to know of this.  The helpline no. Is given as : 044-25357398.  Please use the helpline ONLY when imperatively needed and not for making any general enquiries.
