Bombs and MORE bombs in Hyderabad

25 August 2007: Two very powerful bomb blasts hit the city of Nizams late evening at the Famous Lumbini park around 7.45 pm and another at the Gokul Chat eatery around the same time. We don't know for sure, who are responsible for the bombings. The Chief Minister's office have condemned the bombings and govt officials confirmed that this is the hand of terrorist groups. Police investigative teams claim that RDX were used in the bombings.

At least 36 to 40 people have lost their lives in the incident and around 70 people were injured. The incident came just after the bombing of the Famous Mecca Masjid on 18 May 2007 here in the City.

Police speculation say that a couple of the RDX chemicals presumably used by the terrorists are still out there. Investigations also claim that there were two explosives found in public places which didn't go off.

My Mizo friends in Hyderabad are confirmed to be safe from harm. Though some did plan to go to Lumbini park in the same evening, but dropped the idea due to the weather.

26 August 2007: The police have found 19 unexploded bombs in Hyderabad a day after at least 40 people were killed in blasts Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy blamed on terrorists based in Bangladesh or Pakistan. New Delhi has sent extra police and special bomb detection equipment to Hyderabad

Be safe. God bless
