A woman was seriously injured in Ariankuppam on Tuesday after a country bomb given to her in a package went off at her house.

Jyothi (27), a resident of Ariankuppam, received a call on her mobile phone asking her to come out of the house and collect a package. She went back inside and placed the parcel underneath her bed when it went off.

Senior Superintendent of Police (Law and Order) V.J. Chandiran said that the woman was “out of danger” and being treated at a hospital.

He said that the asbestos roof was ripped off in the impact of the blast. A case has been registered and a special team formed to investigate, Mr. Chandiran said.
