We don't suspect it to be a sabotage or terrorist activity from the nature of the blast. It happened in a dump of sand kept for roadside drain construction. It may have had an unexploded shell which went off today," the DCP said.
An expert bomb squad would be arriving soon, he added.
 The four injured suffered minor wounds and they were being provided medical care at the MMC Civil Hospital nearby, the police official said.
