A newly married man and his grandmother were killed in India when a wedding gift they were opening exploded.

The man’s wife was critically injured in the blast on Friday, February 23, 2018, in the eastern state of Odisha, police said.

Soumya Sekhar and Reema Sahu got married on the 18 February and they received the “gift” at their wedding reception a few days later.

It was actually a parcel bomb and did not have the sender’s address of it, police said.

The parcel exploded as soon as it was unwrapped, relatives told local media.

Sehu and Jemamani Sahu, his 85-year-old grandmother, died from their injuries in a hospital.

The motive for the attack is not clear, police said, however they suspect it was carried out by someone in the area.
