Patna: The toll in the serial blasts in the Bihar capital went up to six following the death of a bomber who was seriously injured in an explosion while setting up a bomb, an official said Monday.
"A suspected accused (who was) seriously injured in bomb explosion while fitting a timer at Patna railway junction died late Sunday night," Patna Senior Superintendent of Police Manu Maharaj said.
Officials at Patna Medical College and Hospital, where 83 injured in serial blasts were admitted Sunday, said that at present 38 are undergoing treatment.
Five are in critical condition and others have been discharged, officials said.
Security was tightened in the city a day after six bombs exploded in and around the Gandhi Maidan where Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi addressed a rally hours later and a blast took place at the railway station.
