A man in possession of a live bomb was arrested on Friday in front of the South Block that houses the Prime Minister's Office and the defence and foreign ministries.

Police said the man named Ashok Kumar belonged to Rohtas district of Bihar and had claimed to have found the explosives in his house.

They said Kumar had apparently approached security personnel guarding gate number five of South Block.

"The interrogation is on and we are trying to check Kumar's antecedents to find out more about him," said a police official.
