Another blast rocked the holy city of Amritsar on Monday.

The blast occurred on Heritage Street on the way to the Golden Temple, around the same place where a blast had taken place on Saturday. No one was injured.

The incident happened at around 6.30 am. Police and forensic teams have reached the spot and are taking samples.

On Saturday night, a mysterious blast in the area had left six people, including tourists, injured and led to panic (Read story, watch video).

DGP Gaurav Yadav visited the spot and denied “any terrorist angle in the blasts, adding that it was a low-intensity explosive in a container”.

Yadav said: “No detonator was used in both blasts.” 

He said it was the handiwork of some miscreants apparently to create panic. He said investigations are in progress to identify the suspects and the motive behind it.
