Patna: A crude bomb exploded at a platform in Patna railway station today, leaving one person dead and another injured.




“The explosion occurred at an isolated place on platform number 10. It was a crude bomb and one person has been injured,” SSP Manu Maharaj told reporters here. 

The incident came just hours before BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi was to address a rally in the Bihar capital, for which BJP had made extensive  arrangements to bring the people to the city.

RPF sources said that the explosion took place in a paid toilet at the station.

The SSP said that bomb disposal and forensic teams have reached the spot and the area was being sanitised.
