There was a delay in 5 -10 minutes in each blast, police has reported that this is has been tried by amateurs and not professionals.

Terrorism finally targeted Bangalore.

Main targets are IT companies and big malls.

Major junctions are facing severe traffic jams, try not to leave your homes and offices as yet.

TOI reports that 6 blasts have been triggered so far.

Guys stay home or back in the office where its safe. Dont venture out till the situation eases.

Whats happening to our cities? This sucks. What is the intelligence dept. doing? Sleeping over?

All the blasts were of low intensity and did not cause much damage. Looks like the blasts were targeted at disrupting the peace in the city rather than to take lives.

If anyone coming by side of major /arterial roads , report the traffic situation?. It would be a boon for fellow-bhpians like me who is following this thread more than the news channels.
