Six people, mainly devotees, were injured in a minor blast on Heritage Street near Golden Temple last week, leading to panic in the area. Police, however, said it was not a terror attack but an accident. A forensic team launched an investigation. The injuries were caused by the flying shards of windowpanes of nearby buildings that shattered due to the impact of the explosion. A resident said the explosion near the Saragarhi Sarai parking left a group of girls injured. Former minister Navjot Singh Sidhu attacked the Bhagwant Mann government, saying “the war in which the life of the king is not at risk is called politics, not war”.
