NEW DELHI, Oct. 27 (Xinhua) -- Twin bomb explosions rocked the eastern Indian state of Bihar's capital Patna Sunday, killing at least one person and injuring five others, a senior police official said.
"The two bomb explosions took place in a span of two hours, one at Patna's main railway station and the other went off near a movie theater in the city. In the first explosion at 10.30 a.m. ( local time), one was killed and another person seriously injured. In the second explosion under a tree near the Elphinstone movie hall, at least four people sustained injuries," he said on condition of anonymity.
All the injured have been admitted to local hospitals where the condition of one is said to be serious, the official said, adding one more crude bomb has been found at the railway station and defused.
The twin explosions came just hours before the country's main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has been scheduled to hold a major political rally to be addressed by its main prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
Indian Railways have been running special trains to facilitate BJP supporters to reach the city to attend the political rally.
