New Delhi: Congress president Sonia Gandhi has expressed deep shock at the loss of lives in the explosion in Bangkok and offered her deepest condolences to the families of the victims.

"Congress president Sonia Gandhi has expressed deep shock at loss of lives in explosion near the Erawan temple in Central Bangkok. Praying for the deceased and injured, Smt Sonia Gandhi offered her deepest condolences to the families of the victims," read the statement issued by the Congress Party.

The official Twitter handle of Indian National Congress also provided some helpline numbers. 

At least 27 people, including four foreigners, were killed and over 80 others injured in a powerful bomb blast inside a hugely popular Lord Brahma temple in a crowded area in Bangkok today in the first such attack in the Thai capital.

The blast, which the government believed was aimed at damaging economy and tourism, occurred inside Erawan Shrine dedicated to Lord Brahma in the downtown Chidlom district, creating panic as people fled the place where cars and motorcycles exploded in the impact.
