"I never heard anything like it. I was walking towards the Dilsukhangar main road when I noticed the smoke and hurried towards it. I will never forget what I saw there. There was blood everywhere, on the cycle stand, the bus stop, the plexi boards and hoardings and on the road," he said.
"There were body parts everywhere. People were running. I heard bloodcurdling screams near Konark theatre where several people, some of them women, were lying. Their clothes were all bloodied and they were screaming for help. Then I heard the second blast,'' he said.
Pallavi Kumari, 38, a nurse who was waiting for a bus near Konark theatre said she heard a big sound and saw people running. Many people who narrowly escaped the blasts, including hundreds of students, stayed back to help the victims but were requested to leave by the police and paramedical staff.
The scene outside Venkatadri theatre left even the police shaken. Blood was splattered all over the road and nearby shops. Body parts were hanging from the shutters of shops nearby. Power and telephone lines had collapsed and the entire area had plunged into darkness.
There was a huge traffic jam on the Dilsukhnagar main road as ambulances and police vehicles rushed to the spot. In spite of being stuck in long traffic jams, autorickshaws and strangers were offering to drop people home even as Cyberabad and Hyderabad police teams arranged for special vehicles to ferry stranded passengers.
