Two low-intensity explosions happened in Agra Cantt railway station’s vicinity on Saturday morning, just hours after Andaman Express crashed into a huge boulder on the tracks near another station 20 km away and police recovered a note at the site warning of terror attacks.
No one was wounded in the two incidents, police said.
Police have cordoned off the Agra Cantt railway station and senior police officers have inspected the area.
“Two explosions have listened early today. The UP police have taken over and now forensic investigations are being done to determine the cause,” Divisional Railway Manager Prabhash Kumar told PTI.
Police sources said the two explosions were heard as garbage was being dumped into a tractor trolly near the railway station. Investigations were on and locals were being asked.
On Friday evening, a note warning terror attacks was found near Bhandai railway station, 20 km away, by police after a major mishap was averted when the alert train driver of Andaman Express from Chennai to Jammu saw a large boulder on the tracks.
“Luckily, the engine driver had noticed it in time and used emergency brakes. A note threatening terrorist attacks was seen at the spot,” police said.
The train crashed into the boulder but since the speed was low, it did not cause any main harm, it said.
Security has also been increased at the Taj Mahal in the wake of a media report of a threat to the 17th-century monument from terror outfit ISIS.
