Chennai: Two explosions on a train killed a 24-year-old woman and wounded 10 people, two of them critically, at the Chennai Central Railway Station on Thursday morning.
Sources say a man who was found hiding in the train was questioned.
The blasts took place at around 7:15 am in two sleeper coaches of the Guwahati-Bangalore Express, which had just pulled into platform 9 of the station for a 10-minute stop.
One of the bombs exploded under the seat of a woman, Swati, who was killed instantly. Officials said she was traveling from Bangalore to Vijayawada. Her relatives have been called to Chennai.
“They were minor intensity blasts. Experts from Delhi will be sent to investigate,” said Union Railway Minister Mallikarjun Kharge. (also read: blasts of low intensity: top 10 facts)

The train was running nearly two hours behind schedule, which raised speculation that some other city may have been the target.
