It was chaos all around at the Chennai Central railway station as passengers ran out of the Guwahati-Bangalore Express in panic soon after the two bombs went off in the coaches of the train.

A passenger, who was travelling by the S3 coach, narrating his experience, said, "I was awake and resting on my berth. At about 7.15am, we heard some sound from the next coach. I came out of the coach and saw what had happened in S4 and S5 coaches".

Most passengers, who were panic-stricken, also rushed out, he said. "We saw three to four injured persons writhing in pain."

"Initially we thought it was the sound of a cylinder explosion. But we later learnt that it was bomb explosion", the passenger said.

One passenger was killed and at least 9 others injured in two bomb blasts that went off in quick succession on the train bound for Guwahati.
