Terror Strikes Mumbai Again, At Least 21 Killed, Over 113 Injured

Recommended Posts

Mumbai was rocked by three blasts in Zaveri Bazar, Dadar and Charni Road areas this evening, killing and injuring several people.

The terror strike coincided with the birthday of Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving gunman in 26/11, who turned 24 today. Kasab has been sentenced to death by a trial court.

Home Minister P Chidambaram had indicated that at least 10 people have been killed, but Maharashtra CM Prithviraj Chavan raised that to 13, which itself was raised subsequently to 17.

Indian Mujahedin has emerged as the group most likely behind the terror strikes.

After initially refusing to take a stand, Home Ministry has now described the blasts in Mumbai as serial bomb blasts.

Improvised explosive devices (IED) were used by the terrorists, says the Home Ministry.

PWD Minister Chaggan Bhujbal confirmed that three blasts have occurred.
