The death toll in the Hyderabad twin blasts today mounted to 16 with two more persons succumbing to their injuries in a hospital.
"Till now, out of 14 bodies, 12 have been handed over to their kin. Two more bodies are in the mortuary. One has to be identified. 14 bodies have directly been sent to Osmania Hospital. Two more are awaited from private hospitals," a senior doctor at the state-run Osmania General Hospital said.
The hospital has received 37 people with injuries while some of them have been admitted to corporate hospitals, he said.
As many as 119 people sustained injuries in the twin blasts last evening, police said.
