Raipur, October 31, 2010: A powerful blast rocked the capital city of Chhattisgarh on Sunday, the day when the state completed ten years.

"It was a powerful blast carried out in the Press Complex area of the capital city of Chhattisgarh," Inspector General (IG) of Police of Raipur Range, Mukesh Gupta told reporters here at the blast site.

No one was killed or injured in the blast, but the explosion caused damage to near by buildings and vehicles, said Gupta

Police and explosive experts were probing how the blast took place and what could be the motive, he said.

The blast might have been carried out to create sensation, and police has already begun its probe, said Director General of Police Vishwa Ranjan.

Maoists have become expert in handling explosive materials and they may not have been involved in this blast as it seems to be an act of an immature group, said Ranjan.

"It seems miscreants set on fire some detonators and that exploded but a major accident was averted as the detonators were not attached to any explosive materials," said Gupta.

Detonators are used to initiate bomb blast. But detonator also generates a lot of sound.

Because of the impact of the blast, windows and doors of several near by official and residential buildings and vehicles had been damaged.

Eye witnesses told Police that four youth were seen setting on fire some materials, where the blast took place. But those youths had not yet been identified.

"The blast was so powerful that the glass windows of even the third floor of our office have been damaged," said Prakash Sharma, a senior staff of "Tarun Chhattisgarh" newspaper. The blast took place close to the Tarun Chhattisgarh building.

The blast has created a sensation in the capital city as the explosion took place on the day when the state completed ten years of its creation.
