There were no trains present on the platforms when the explosion took place at 1:55 am, they said.
The damage from the explosion could have much more had there been any train at the station. Two trains had pulled out before the explosion, and the Kutch Express was about to arrive on the platform.
The bomb was kept near an iron pillar on platform 2. The impact of the explosion was so strong that the platform's roof was blown up in the blast, and some offices on platform 1 were also damaged.
