Default Hyderabad Bomb Hoax/Real?

Guys, I stepped out for a smoke and saw helluva lot of commotion on the main road with lots of police and bomb squads entering a building right in front of my office building. Incidentally this building houses the Yahoo India offices.

Don't know if its a hoax or a real bomb has been planted. As i write this bomb squads entered the building a few minutes ago.

In anotherr area of Hyderabad, Koti and Esamia Bazar seems like a temple is broken and people went on a rampage and burnt some buses etc. Lot of unrest in that area.

Beware before venturing out to those areas. What is happening to India?

Thanks for the heads-up, Avi. Where is your office located, BTW?

It seems like MCH had to remove the temple as a part of their road widening program in Koti and there were some protests against it...nothing serious to worry about....

There were at least 3 bomb scares over the past year in HSBC on Raj Bhawan Road. I guess this is a routine hoax call.
