With Delhi being shaken again by a bomb blast on Saturday, Home Minister Shivraj Patil reviewed the situation with top officials of his ministry and extended all assistance to the Delhi Police Commissioner to deal with the incident.

Patil spoke to senior officials, including Home Secretary Madhukar Gupta, who in turn was in constant touch with the Delhi Police chief.

Gupta also spoke to AIIMS authorities to find out the condition of the injured, a Home Ministry spokesman said.

The doctors told Gupta that two of the wounded might require some surgery while the condition of others was not serious, the spokesman said.

The Home Secretary asked the AIIMS authorities to provide best possible care to the injured.

The blast in a market in Mehrauli, close to the historic Qutub Minar, left one dead and 18 injured. Exactly a fortnight ago, the capital was rocked by five near simultaneous blasts in which 24 people were killed.
