According to Bargarh Superintendent of Police (SP) Mukesh Kumar Bhamoo, a brown colour parcel was placed on the boundary wall of Nagabhusan when it exploded.

Meanwhile, a scientific team also rushed to the spot and started investigation.
DIG of police (Northern range), Satyabrata Bhoi, informed that the police is interrogating the family members of the injured and some locals from the area.
