Mumbai: Three explosions have taken place in Mumbai on Wednesday evening - two in South Mumbai at Opera House and in Zaveri Bazar and one at Dadar West, in central Mumbai. The Home Ministry has confirmed a terrorist attack and Mumbai is on high alert.

Maharashtra government sources say at least 60 people have been injured in the serial blasts. Eyewitnesses said about 15 to 20 people have taken to hospital in Zaveri Bazar. There were unconfirmed reports said six people had died in the Dadar blast, four in the Zaveri Bazaar blast.

The Home Ministry has said that Improvised Explosive Devices were used. All blasts took place during rush hour and in crowded places. The Dadar area houses the Shiv Sena Bhawan.

One explosion, in a car at a bus stop in Dadar West, has been confirmed. A police officer said there might have been an explosive in a meter box behind a hoarding at Khau gali, a street filled with eateries at Zaveri Bazaar. The Opera House blast took place at Prasad Chamber.

An unexploded bomb has also reportedly been found in Dadar and a bomb disposal squad is working to defuse it.

Early reports said a police control room had received a call claiming that there were serial blasts in Mumbai.

A National Investigation Agency (NIA) team has rushed to Mumbai from Delhi to investigate and collect forensic evidence. The police have appealed for calm.

Zaveri Bazaar has been hit before - over 50 people were killed in twin blasts in 2002.

Malls, markets and other crowded places in Delhi, Chennai and Bangalore are on high alert.

This sentence omits the trails of humanity in these dead lives. Anyone who reads it takes them as "just a person", when they don't realize that they could have lead a life just like you and the later consequences...

Rahul Gandhi earlier on Thursday said that it was virtually impossible to stop all terrorist attacks, though every attempt was being made by the government and security agencies to do so.

"We will stop 99 % of the (militant) attacks. But one percent of attacks might get through and that is what I am saying," he told mediapersons in Bhubaneswar.

hmm... what an excuse!

it makes me feel sad for my country,
we have a billion people, and cant stop a bomb going off every few months.

look at usa, they totally cracked down on terror after 9/11, cant we take some examples from them?

Opera House,Zhaveri Bazaar & Dadar is sensitive spot for terrorists

now thats harsh , too harsh i must say....

you cant blame them alone...
police alone cant act at once..
thr r divisions ,Intelligence , crime , field ...etc,,,(which are directly affected by political leaders)
even if they came to knw abt something there are pressure from Political leaders and corrupted officials to make sure they dont hurt their Dear ones (political leaders or officials dear ones)
now u may ask how this is related to stopping a bomb blast, but trust me every minute details counts alot....
if u ask me Give police an independent authority (operated only from president etc..sort of thing) and then see the Result,,,,,but again that may concern the human rights Activists

I have seen people bashing Police's responsibility every time some bombing(or such thing) happens but they don't actually know that police are nt given full freedom to prevent such thing...which is of-course an inside story and doesnt come out

Instead of that rash comments , Think what part your playing to improve the Society and are you good at it ?
