HYDERABAD: Residents of five-storeyed Navanavomi Residency located abutting the explosion site said that for a moment they had thought that the building would come crashing down and rushed out for help. At 6.48 pm on Friday, the first explosion rocked the area, followed by a series of explosions.
This is not the first time say residents, “After every explosion, we face the same situation, but this is the first time that an explosion took place with such a loud noise. This is the situation for the past eight months and everytime we complained to the site engineer, they told they will take necessary measures to decrease the intensity of the blast.” “We are living in a grip of fear and today we got to experience the worst.
Due to the effect, the window panes of all the flats in the apartment broke into pieces and the household articles too were damaged.” said S Aravind Reddy, a techie from the apartment. “None of the civic officials or leaders visited us or tried to know our condition. All flats are filled with broken window panes and damaged household articles on the floor. Anyone especially, kids can get hurt with the glass pieces.” said a techie.
