Two persons have been detained for questioning by the Faridabad police in connection with a call allegedly made to the Delhi [Images] police on Friday, saying that the capital will witness another blast.

The two men were detained on Saturday night after Delhi was hit by a bomb blast in Mehrauli area in which three people have succumbed to their injuries and 23 others have been wounded, a Faridabad police officer said on Sunday.

He said the call was traced to a cell phone belonging  to man from Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh [Images], who had allegedly made the call to the Delhi police on Friday evening.

The man, who had made the call from the vicinity of a  mobile phone tower in Mohan Nagar area, had stated "Delhi bachaloh, blast hoga" (Save Delhi, there will be blast), he said.

The man had allegedly purchased the SIM card from a shopowner in Bikam Colony in Ballabgarh area, the police officer said, adding that the two have been detained for questioning and that they have not yet been arrested.
