Bangalore: Two crude bombs were found at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium here Sunday a day after two low intensity blasts there left 16 people injured.

The first bomb was found near a bus stop close to Gate No 1, the main gate of the stadium, at around 9 a.m. The second device was found near an advertisement hoarding just outside the stadium, police said.

On Saturday, two blasts had delayed the start of the Royal Challengers Bangalore-Mumbai Indian tie by an hour.

Additional Commissioner of Police M.R. Pujar confirmed the finding of two crude bombs Sunday. Police are searching around the stadium as part of efforts to sanitize the area as both the semi-finals of the IPL are to be played there April 21 and 22.

One of the blasts Saturday took place at Gate No 12, in which 16 people, including four policemen, received minor injuries while a security volunteer suffered head injuries. He is being treated at Mallya Hospital, about two km away, from the stadium.

The second blast was at Anil Kumble circle, less than half a kilometre from the stadium. None was injured.

An explosive was found later in the stadium even as the IPL match was on and defused. Timer devices were attached to the three bombs.
