A year has passed since the dreadful twin bomb blasts rocked Dilsukhnagar in the city killing 17 persons, but the gory scenes involving blood and flesh remain fresh in the minds of vendors and shopkeepers around the crowded locality.

Memories of grief and loss continue to haunt those who have suffered. And, those who survived are learnt to have left, unable to bear the trauma, in search of a peaceful life. However, all of them say, nothing much has changed towards better security.

Twenty-six year old Yadagiri, a resident of  LB Nagar, not only lost his left eye and did not get the full ex gratia amount promised but has been unemployed ever since.

Presently, he lives on his wife’s salary. ‘’Despite making regular rounds of Rangareddy collectorate for the ex gratia or employment, I have not received any,” he says.

Tributes Paid to Blast Victims

Members of Anti-Terrorism Forum, BJP, CPI and All-India Peace and Solidarity Organisation raised slogans against terrorism at the blast site on Friday morning and lit candles paying tributes to the deceased.
