Panic prevailed after five low intensity blasts in a span of ten minutes occurred in Chikmagalur on Thursday, following which security was stepped up in the city.

People got panicky as the explosions came within a month of the serial bomb blasts in Bangalore recently.

Police said no damage was reported as the blasts happened near a drain in the Agrahara area creating a thick blanket of smoke.

Explosive experts with sniffer dogs rushed to the area and found some chemicals which have been sent for examination.
