Chapra: At least 6 people were injured today in a bomb blast carried by a woman in Bihar’s Saran district, police said.

This is the second bomb blast in the court premises in Bihar within two months.

The incident took place at a high security area when prisoners were brought in for legal proceedings.

Three suspects including a woman identified as Khushbu Kumari had allegedly come with a bomb in the court premise with an intention to target a complainant in a case but it went off accidentally, injuring her seriously, said Superintendent of Police Pankaj Kumar Raj.

The lady has been rushed to Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH), the SP said, adding that two other women including a minor girl also suffered injuries in the incident.

Khushbu Kumari, who is accused in two other cases and is currently out on bail, had come to the court premises with an intention to target Shashi Bhushan and some other witnesses of a case, the SP said.

Shashi Bhushan is a complainant in the murder case of three persons that occurred at ex MP late Umashankar Singh’s Chapra residence in 2011.
