In the capital's Swamibagh Ashram (a famous Hindu religious center), a bomb explosion occurred during the prayer (kirtan) session on December 88th, 2001. The sound of the explosion was very loud, however no one was reportedly injured.  The temple administrator explained to this reporter that the prayer sessions occurred every Saturday evening and this was no exception.  Suddenly, a bomb was hurled inside the center.  The session stopped due to the explosion. The Ashram authorities stated that the principal members of the center barely escaped from being severely injured or death.  No group has claimed responsibility.  The police has been in the scene after the explosion and have left after taking observations.
