"The injured, including three CRPF troopers, a local cop and a civilian, were immediately evacuated to hospital for treatment. Attending doctors have described the condition of the local cop as critical," a senior police officer told rediff.com.
He said the area around the blast site was surrounded by the CRPF and police for search operations. High tension has gripped the area.
