A powerful blast rocked Varanasi's Sheetla ghat during an ongoing Ganga arati at 6.30 pm today, injuring more than 20 people.
The blast is believed to have been triggered by an IED planted in a milk container.
Given the kind of explosives used and the manner in which it targetted a certain community, the blast is being suspected to be a terror attack.
The Pakistan-based terrorist group Indian Mujahideen's name is doing the rounds as the perpetrator of the crime as they have set off bomb blasts in Varanasi earlier.
Sheetla ghat is situated near Dasaswamedh ghat, the largest ghat in Varanasi. Hundreds of devotees flock here to offer their tributes to the holy river, Ganga, and being a Tuesday, the crowd was much higher today. The blast also led to a stampede at the ghat.
All the injured have been rushed to local hospitals.
The Ministry of Home Affairs has confirmed the blast and asked the DGP of Uttar Pradesh to provide a full report. High alert has been already sounded at Varanasi.

DEADLY TAMIL SCAM: LOOTING INDIA & SABOTAGING ITS DEFENCE-II: I wrote on July 27, 2010:- "I am India's expert in strategic defence and the father of India's strategic program, including the Integrated Guided Missile Development Program. I have shown in my blog titled 'Nuclear Supremacy For India Over U.S.', which can be found by a Yahoo search with the title, that all terrorism and insurgencies in the Indian subcontinent and in much of the rest of the world is sponsored by the C.I.A. Both Pakistan's ISI and India's RAW function as branches of the C.I.A. and participate in terrorism and insurgencies throughout the Subcontinent, under direction of the C.I.A. Yes, the ISI secretly supports the Taliban but it does so under direction from the C.I.A. whose modus operandi is support for ALL sides of a conflict to control the course of the conflict in service of its own goals. The goal of the U.S. invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and partial occupation of Pakistan is eventual occupation and overt colonial rule over the Subcontinent as a whole. This will not be permitted and all those participating in this enterprise, including the U.K., will be duly punished; see my blog. The document leak currently in the news has been made in preparation for abandonment of this goal and withdrawal from Afghanistan because of steps I have already taken for the nuclear destruction of New Delhi and then the coast-to-coast destruction of the United States by India with 5,000 thermonuclear warheads and extermination of its population; see my blog." I have said (see my blog) "almost all terrorism and separatism in India since 1983 has been sponsored by the C.I.A. -- K. Subrahmanyam has been the kingpin of all this C.I.A.-sponsored terrorism and separatism in India, not just in Sri Lanka and East Pakistan and in even more serious crimes than terrorism and separatism against India; why doesnâ€™t someone torture him and investigate him? I can provide a lot of evidence, though I know that only the nuclear destruction of New Delhi will do the job -- through RAW and other intelligence agencies in the region using several layers of intermediaries in various religious groups, army officers, corporate houses, politicians and others -- and piracy, which is sea-based terrorism sponsored by the C.I.A. and, like the land-based terrorism, aims to draw India into a U.S.-led war on terrorism and piracy." K. Subrahmanyam, a Tamil, has been sabotaging India's defence in various ways and his son, S. Jaishankar, while India's ambassador in Singapore, negotiated in Washington the nuclear deal -- which fatally injures India's defence and economically loots it in numerous ways(see my blog) -- and later, when ambassador to China, asked the U.S. to be India's daddy in protecting India from "bully" China ("Indian envoy sought U.S. help against China", Times of India, December 6, 2010, Internet; "India complained about 'bully' China", Hindustan Times, December 6, 2010, Internet) -- while K. Subrahmanyam has been doing the same. While RAW has always been a branch of the C.I.A., the Tamil traitor-enemy P. Chidambaram has made other Indian intelligence agencies branches of the United States intelligence agencies, on the pretext of fighting terrorism, bringing in U.S. equipment to India to enable comprehensive real-time monitoring and interception ability for the U.S. of all communications in India, a comprehensive and total censorship power to the United States of not only what gets into the Indian media of all kinds but even communications between individuals, bringing India into a colonial grip of and slavery to the United States such as has never been seen in human history.
