Default Blast in Kolkata?

Just heard that there was a blast in Kolkata (a few minutes ago) killing two people, can someone confirm this?

Reports say that it was a crude bomb which went off. I hope its an isolated case, gotta go to the station to drop some relatives in an hour.

Appears to be a discarded shell from the Gun & Shell Co. Some people found it and started to dismantle it. 4 dead till now, 6 injured.
Its not a terror attack states the police.
