Two minors were injured Saturday after a crude bomb exploded near Dumdum railway station on the city's outskirts, police said.

"Three crude bombs inside a bag were lying near the railway tracks and when these two boys, who are rag pickers, picked up the bag, one of the bombs exploded injuring both of them," said Superintendent of Railway Police (Sealdah) Debashis Bej.

Identified as Safiq (11) and Shahrukh (13), the victims have been admitted to R.G. Kar Hospital.

"The bombs squad has defused the two live bombs, and the area is being scanned to see if there are any more bombs," said Bej adding that train movement was not affected.
