Ammonium Nitrate

Ammonium Nitrate was again used in Saturday's blast in South Delhi's Mehrauli area that killed a boy and left nearly two dozen people injured.

Officials said Ammonium Nitrate was accompanied with one-and-a-half inch nails, which acted as shrapnels leading to injuries.

The packing of explosive was very loose thus making it a low-intensity explosion.

The same explosive material was used in the five serial blasts that shook the national capital on September 13, leaving 24 people dead and many others injured.
