New Delhi: one person was killed and a few others were injured in a blast at the crowded wholesale Chandni Chowk market here on Tuesday.

A labourer who was carrying on his head explosives in a gunny bag was killed on the spot when there was an explosion as soon as he placed the bag on the ground. The explosion was so huge that the sound of the blast could be heard in a half kilometer radius. Several salesmen working in shops near the explosion site were injured and rushed to hospital. Many shops  also were been badly damaged.

The police described this as a low intensity blast but did not rule out terror angle. The explosion during the Diwali festival season has raised concern.
