A police spokesperson said the blast took place at the second floor of the state Public Works Department (PWD) office around 1.30 p.m.

“There was information that a bomb was planted inside the office and hence over 95 percent of the staff was evacuated. A bomb disposal squad also arrived at the site but the bomb went off injuring six people,” the police officer said.

The injured, including a woman, were shifted to a local hospital with multiple injuries.
