At least 10 people were injured when a bomb exploded inside a Punjab Roadways bus in Jalandhar on Friday evening.

The bus, which was on its way to Hoshiarpur from Amritsar after a brief halt, was pulling away from the local bus stand when the explosion occurred.

The nature of the blast was not known immediately.

At least 10 persons on board sustained burn injuries and were rushed to a nearby civil hospital.

The vehicle was totally damaged in the explosion.

Forensic experts have reached the bus stand to ascertain the nature of the blast, which seems to have been caused by explosives placed under a seat.

Senior civil and police officers have also reached the site.
