Indian police say bomb explosions inside two movie theaters in New Delhi have injured about 50 people.

Both theaters - located in the same west Delhi neighborhood - were showing a controversial Hindi-language film when the blasts hit 15 minutes apart late Sunday.

Police cordoned off the area and the city's security forces were put on alert.

Several other movie theaters showing the film in New Delhi were evacuated immediately after the explosions. The movie, called Jo Bole So Nihal, has been condemned by Sikh religious leaders who say it denigrates their faith.

No one has claimed responsibility for the blasts.
