Twin blasts ripped through two coaches of a train Thursday morning just minutes after it pulled into one of India's busiest railway stations, killing a 22-year-old woman and injuring 14 other people, officials said.Authorities suspect the blasts were caused by bombs planted on the Bangalore-Guwahati Express train, said M. Bhupati, the spokesman for India's southern railway system.The blasts come amid heightened security nationwide for India's massive general election, which is being held in phases over several weeks.At least one of the blasts erupted from underneath a seat where the 22-year-old victim was sitting, killing her, Mishra said. India has one of the world's largest railway networks, with more than 23 million passengers a day riding on about 11,000 trains.
