Yes, and add to that, a car ( Wagon R ) was also found loaded with explosives.

The surprising fact is that yesterday, in the bomb blast at Ahmedabad Civil Hospital, the car used was also a Wagon R and it was from Vadodara.
Today the car found in Surat is also from Vadodara.

Till now they have found two Wagon R. One black and one Red. Both the cars were loaded with explosives. But fortunately the explosives were diffuesed.

One more thing about the number plates used in Ahmedabad Civil hopsital blast and the black wagon R. Both the cars were from carrying number plates that indicated the cars are from Vadodara. But it turned out that the number plates were fake. Basically the number plates had bike numbers ( i.e. bike number series )on them.

Similarly the red Wagon R found in Surat had number GJ-5, i.e. Surat. This number series was for two wheelers. So the terrorists were smart here.

Four more bombs defused in Surat! One in the Mini Nagar and three more in the Varaccha area. Police have cordoned off these areas, and are in a state of high-alert throughout Surat.
Team-bhpians in Surat please be careful. Do not venture out unless necessary and dont go near crowds. It looks like another series of serial blasts were planned for the city.

Edit: According to NDTV website, seven live bombs have now been found. Not clear as to how many have been defused so far.

Let us not use the word Smart to describe any Terrorist.
If they had any smartness in them, they would have realised the uselessness of violence in any form.

May god judge them and let us help expedite the process.

How can someone just climb a tree and plant a bomb! There is something else going on somewhere! I don't want to open a can of worms by crying foul, but I am sure there is more to this than meets the eye! I just pray and hope that the innocent are not targeted at the behest of security and communal harmony is maintained.

Regarding this pic from news :

Something has to be done about the idiots who are watching the bomb instead of running away. It is not some tamasha and shrapnels can kill if it explodes.

Ahmedabad blasts: Owners of stolen cars questioned

The four cars were stolen on the nights of July 7 and July 14, both Tuesdays.
Places where cars were stolen: 1 from Vashi, 1 from Nerul and 2 from Panvel.

I wonder why the Mumbai guys are losing their cars.

I always assumed that a bomb will have metal objects like ball bearing and nails etc.
These look like very big bars of soap.
with bright green wrappers.

Why am I not convinced?
