An unattended and explosive-filled bag created havoc outside the Army's Base Hospital in cantonment area here on Monday afternoon.

However, a bomb disposal squad reached on time and defused the explosive device.

Meanwhile, according to some TV reports, another suspicious bag has been found in a market in the Greater Kailash area of the nationl capital.

Delhi has been on high alert since last week's terror attack in Hyderabad in which 16 people were killed and more than 100 injured after two bombs exploded near-simultaneously in a crowded market.

Heavy security has been deployed near the hospital area and all the crowded markets. (ANI)
