A third explosion occurred near the Dena Bank in the same area, triggering panic among people during the evening peak hour.

A fourth explosion went off on a bicycle at Garware Chowk on the same road.

"The blasts appear to be well-coordinated," a police officer said.

According to reports, a sixth bomb was diffused near a McDonald joint in the city.

The explosives were planted in a garbage can outside a food plaza and on a bicycle. Police teams and explosives experts rushed to the spots.
