One injured in India bomb blasts

  • At least one person has been injured in a series of bomb blasts in India’s western Pune city.

    The explosions went off within minutes of each other during evening rush hour and have been described as "low-intensity".

    The blasts came on the same day that India's new home minister, Sushilkumar Shinde, took up his post.

    "It does not seem to be a terrorist attack - rather it seems to have been a mischief-maker," Pune police commissioner Gopal Rao Pol told AFP news agency.

    One of the bombs exploded outside a McDonalds fast food restaurant while another two went off near a theater and a bank.

    Up to two other bombs were defused.
