A bomb blast rocked the office of a cable TV provider in India's portion of Kashmir on Monday, and a man who died in the explosion may have planted the device, police said. The company's third floor office was badly damaged by the blast in Sopore, a town 50 kilometers (30 miles) north of Srinagar, the main city in India's Jammu-Kashmir state, said Superintendent of Police Viplav Kumar. "We suspect the man was planting an improvised explosive device on the third floor of the building and it went off," Kumar said. There were no other casualties in the blast which took place after office hours, he said.
