Ludhiana/IBNS: A man was killed and five others were seriously injured in a blast which took place inside a bathroom at a Ludhiana court in poll-bound Punjab on Thursday, media reports said.

The blast reportedly occurred on the second floor of the building at around 12:22 pm.

The blast has damaged the bathroom walls and also shattered the glasses in nearby rooms.

Among the injured, three are men and two women.

Fire tenders were immediately rushed to the spot while the injured were seen taken out of the building.

A team of National Investigation Agency (NIA) has rushed to the spot.

Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi said the blast was carried to disrupt the law and order situation in the poll-bound state.

"No guilty will be spared," the Chief Minister told the media.

Former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh tweeted, "Disturbing news of a blast at Ludhiana court complex. Saddened to know about the demise of 2 individuals, Praying for the recovery of those injured. @PunjabPoliceInd must get to the bottom of this."

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said, "Some people are trying to disturb the situation in Punjab ahead of the polls. But the people of Punjab won't let their conspiracy succeed."

Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) chief Sukhbir Singh Badal tweeted, "Shocked by news of blast at Ludhiana dist court where 2 people lost their lives & several injured. May Guru Sahib grant peace to departed souls & fast recovery to injured. Pb govt must focus on law & order instead of political vendetta to ensure peace & communal harmony in State."
