I heard the mobile jamming takes place for stopping any further mobile-phone-call based detonation.

Guys, its safe to be where ever you are now, try messaging your friends and relatives as the mobile service is totally jam packed.

One of my friend from UK is chatting with me now, even he is very concerned about this family at this point in time.

Coming on to road at this time is not advisable as most of the roads are blocked and traffic is jam packed.

It sucks. Big time.
Hope peace will return quickly. Why can't people blast their engines, turbo them etc., instead of involving in these ghastly acts.

This seems to be a case wherein the comman man is made to suffer due to lack of co-ordination between the central govt. (Congress) and the state government (BJP). The same thing was evident when the Jaipur Blasts took place. Its high time we get rid of these parties and adopt the US system of Presidential Rule!

Man, this is really bad!

Guys, take care. Stay where you are for few more hours for things to settle down. Getting on road is not the best thing to do now.

Bangalore (rather Karnataka) has a lot of terrorist activity and this is evident from recent news were many of them were caught from smaller towns and places in Karnataka. But targetting Bangalore, that too with such a scale is new! Remember the IISc incident? Those were terrorist, weren't they?

As per one of the collegues here, one of the blast happened outside Total Mall, at Madiwala. That is the one that has be said as the strongest blast so far - 1 lady seems to have died in that!

Angry

the count is at 9 with 3 people dead and 25+ injured..the blast were timmed within 12 mins and all were low intensity crude bombs..no trace of RDX which is good.
looks like Naxal attacks and not ISI.
