Sixth Explosion Rocks New Delhi

An explosion in a marketplace in the old quarter of the Indian capital killed two people and injured one Wednesday morning.

Residents said it was caused by a bomb. Police blamed a leaking gas cylinder kept inside a sealed room, but Inspector Ran Singh Gahlot, who was heading the investigation, said police had not found pieces of a cylinder in the debris.

In the past two weeks, five other bombs have exploded in the New Delhi area, injuring 54 people, and police are investigating whether they were set by terrorist groups.

The blast happened about 5 a.m. inside the office building in the overcrowded Lahori Gate commercial neighborhood.
