The Thursday evening blasts at Dilsukhnagar shook the conscious of the people. They are very angry, but don’t know what to do as the perpetrators of the gruesome crime are shadowy figures. Sagaram Sharat, a software student who was in the vicinity when the bombs went off, narrates the horror tale:

When I went to the spot, about 200 people were running and everybody was screaming. There was blood everywhere. I captured a gory picture of the spot. Until sometime, I am unable to accept the reality as it was the first time for me to see such a horrific incident.

When the bomb blast took place, I was attending a class at CMETES. Our institute is just half a km away from the spot. I and my fellow classmates were listening to the lesson when we heard a big sound and saw sparkles of fire, from the window of our class room.

We heard another blast within a span of one minute. The attender of our institute came into classroom and told us that a bomb blast took place nearby. All the students in our class were terrified and everybody came out running. I called up a friend in the neighbourhood, who confirmed that it was a bomb blast. I went to the spot. I heard that 15 to 20 people died. I also heard that there were total three bombs placed--two at Anand tiffin centre and one at

Venkatadri theatre. Soon, police started dispersing people. Vehicles got stuck in traffic. The surrounding areas of Disukhnagar reverberated with the sounds of police and ambulance sirens and the screams of people. After some time, I called my brother and mother and told them that there was a bomb blast at Dilsukhnagar. They cried and asked me to reach home safely.
