Punjab: An explosion was heard near the Golden Temple on Saturday night which injured several people and damaged the glass facades of some buildings, police said on Sunday. 

The cause of the explosion is yet to be ascertained. According to police, the incident was reported from an eating joint within a one-km radius of the holy Sikh shrine. 

Forensic teams reached the spot and were conducting investigation, the police said. They said one person was injured in the incident. Glass facades of some buildings were also damaged in the explosion, they added.
