Bangalore: Three persons admitted to the
Intensive Care Unit of a private hospital here following
injuries sustained in two-low intensity blasts at Chinnaswamy
stadium, are "doing fine," hospital sources said.

"Two of three admitted to the ICU suffered from tympanic
membrane perforation where a membrane of the ear was injured.
There were some foreign bodies in the ears which were
removed," they said.

The patients were experiencing some mild discomfort, but
the wounds would heal and they were not likely to suffer any
hearing loss, they said.

Two of the injured also had scalp injuries and one had
chest injuries, the sources said, adding the wounds had been
sutured.

Meanwhile, five patients admitted to the wards have been
discharged. They had complained of hearing loss owing to the
impact of the blast on their eardrums. They have been given
antibiotics and called for follow ups.

Seven persons had already been discharged after primary
treatment.

Fifteen persons, including police personnel, were injured
when two low-intensity bombs went off at Chinnaswamy stadium
yesterday minutes before the start of an IPL match between
Royal Challengers, Bangalore and Mumbai Indians.
