New Delhi: September 27, 2008 - A 11-year-old-boy died and more than 18 people were injured when a crude bomb exploded at a crowded flower market at Mehrauli, south Delhi, close to the historic Qutub Minar, at 2.12pm on Saturday, police said.
The injured have been admitted to AIIMS; 12 of them are at the Trauma Centre.
The national capital has been put on high alert. The explosion comes exactly two weeks after the serial blasts in Delhi, in which about two dozen people were killed.
According to eyewitnesses, two men on a motorcycle had dropped a tiffin box at the market, known as Phoolwalon ki Sairwala Market, near Aulia Masjid. When the boy picked up the tiffin box, a loud explosion took place, killing him and injuring many people.
