New Delhi, Feb 25 : An unclaimed bag was reportedly found outside the Army Base Hospital in Delhi Cantonment area on Monday, making the Delhi Police and bomb disposal squad rush to the spot.

The police have cordoned off the area.

According to reports, a National Security Guards (NSG) team has been called to investigate the matter.

"It is too early to say what kind of explosive is there in the bag. With the help of our sniffer dogs we have come to the conclusion that there could be some explosives, the nature is still not known," A K Ojha, Additional Commissioner of Police (southwest), told The Indian Express.

The national capital has been on alert after twin blasts ripped through a crowded area of Andhra Pradesh capital Hyderabad last week that killed at least 16 people and injured more than 100 people.
