The eatery run by a private contractor, adjacent to a multinational eatery, was just off the main concourse through which people pass towards the platforms and is generally crowded. No services were called off because of the explosion.
The timing of the blast added to the fears just two minutes before the Mumbai-Delhi Rajdhani Express was to leave. That is around the time when several trains leave towards Gujarat and New Delhi.
The Minister of State for Home, Kripashankar Singh, told The Hindu that "it does not, as of now, appear to be a bomb" and even the dogs attached to the bomb squad did not sniff out anything suspicious. We suspect the air-conditioner to be the problem".
