LUCKNOW, India — Police were questioning two brothers for their alleged involvement in a blast that killed a toddler and triggered a stampede that left many others wounded in a holy Indian city, a top police official said Wednesday.

The men were detained in Mumbai, India's financial hub, after investigators determined that an e-mail claiming responsibility for the blast in Varanasi town had been sent from a laptop belonging to the two, the official said. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.The bomb hidden in a metal canister exploded Tuesday evening as thousands gathered for a daily Hindu ritual on the banks of the Ganges River in Varanasi.
