Dilsukhnagar limping back to normalcy

Hyderabad blast

The busy Dilsukhnagar area of the city, which witnessed twin bomb blasts on Thursday, is limping back to normalcy with shopkeepers and roadside vendors resuming their business.

Traffic returned to normal today and commercial establishments began to open on the stretch, two days after the deadly terror attack near the bus stand, which claimed 16 lives.

Dilsukhnagar, which connects to Hyderabad-Vijayawada highway, is abuzz with activity on a usual day, as it houses a number of educational institutions, coaching centres for job aspirants, government offices, several malls and innumerable commercial establishments.

Now, a sense of fear has gripped the area since the simultaneous blasts.

"But, life has to go on. Such a thing should not happen again," Krishna Prasad, a private company employee, said.

Meanwhile, sources in the state-run Osmania General Hspital said the condition of some of the injured is stated to be critical.

The Andhra Pradesh government has promised to bear the cost of their treatment.
