Delhi Police are now investigating how such an incident could take place inside the high-security premises and an inquiry has been launched to probe the matter.
The firecracker exploded at about 12.30 pm on Thursday, in the basement parking area of an eight-storeyed building on the court premises.
“Police received a call in the afternoon about a blast at the Saket court complex. Several police teams rushed there, along with fire tenders of the Delhi Fire Services,” said a senior official.
The area was later cordoned off, said police.
