Superintendent of police Ganesh Chetri said the explosion was apparently to "create terror" among the residents rather than target any government building or people.

He said security had been stepped up and police have detained one person for questioning. One man with a pistol was arrested right after the attack, police said.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
