In a blast that smacks of terror plot, an Indian restaurant in Ontario province’s Mississauga, a suburb of the Canadian city of Toronto, was targeted.
The blast led to injuries to at least over a dozen people there.
Preliminary reports suggest that two unidentified men may have played role in the blast.
Meanwhile, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has said that she is in constant touch with the Indian High Commissioner in Canada and has put out an emergency number.
The restaurant has been identified as Bombay Bhel and the injured were rushed to the nearest hospital.
Sources informed that the blast occurred just after 10:30 pm (local time).
Incidentally, the blast comes a month after a driver plowed his white Ryder rental van into a lunch-hour crowd in Toronto, killing 10 people and injuring 15.
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj also listed an emergency number for the Indian nationals in Toronto, and said that she is in constant touch with our Consul General in Toronto and Indian High Commissioner in Canada.
The emergency number is +1-647-668-4108.
Meanwhile local police sources have said that they have two suspects on radar and they may have detonated an Improvised Explosive Device within the restaurant.
Police has sought help from the masses in identifying the two suspects.>
