Television channels said as many as 15 people may have been killed in the explosions.

"We have been in touch with state government officials," R.K. Singh, the top bureaucrat in the federal interior ministry, told reporters in New Delhi. "Ten people were killed and 50 injured."

Witnesses told Reuters they heard at least two explosions in the area just after dusk but there could have been more.
