Update 14: CNN IBN shows people speaking, no one from RPF and police helped, the local people took the bodies out, RPF men were doing nothing but watching them do the work (instead of helping them) – If you have CNN IBN on your TV set, watch it – they are showing good coverage on the issue, basically what people have to say about the issue and how they helped and how police failed to showup…

I am shuffling the channels but I fail to find enough police force to help people. All I can see is, people trying to help with whatever they can…


7 blasts in the local trains…

Reports of bomb blasts have come in from between Mahim-Matunga in north-central Mumbai, Khar, Jogeshwari (both in north-west Mumbai) and Mira Road (in Mumbai north, in Thane district), at a time when the suburban commuter traffic was its heaviest. The first blast was said to have taken place at 6.25 pm at Khar.

The Western Railway emergency service has so far confirmed the Khar blast, and said further details were awaited.

  3. i got news of very fist blast.. called up bombay central railway station for more info as it is the time i leave for home. there i got news of second blast. And then TV in office was turned on, and whole series of blasts.. as phones are not working, i am giving updates to my contacts through Yahoo/WLM/Google chat/Rediff Bol.

    Mobile phones are not working for most of time but Rediff bol helped a lot by giving free sms.

    ICICI Online recharge for prepaid mobiles was also helpful as i did topup of my few friends from office instantly.

  5. If i see a terrorist anywhere near me I am going to kill him right at the spot.

    This is the worst incident to happen to Mumbai, unite people we need to fight them off, no one can fight them unless we unite.

    I hate to see these people dying, tomorrow it can be either you or me, we are so lucky to be alive.

    But if we weren’t would our familes cry or fight…

    So it is better to fight and die, rather than die and cry.

  10. This is really a horrific & insane act towards humanity, people who have committed such an act of terror will suffer in utter pain & will face their worst fear. For the ones who have lost their lives & have left behind loved ones & children we all whole hearteadly pray for their soul to live in peace.
