Serial Blasts have been reported in at least 3 locations in Mumbai city on the evening of 13th July 2011, coincidentally OR NOT, the birthday of Ajmal Amir Kasab, lone surviving terrorist convicted for the 26/11 attacks. The Mumbai police is being cautious and calling them explosions. The reported blasts have occurred at Zaveri Bazaar, Opera House and Dadar station.

All three locations are known to be extremely crowded in the evening with commuters and cars in heavy numbers. The blasts occurred within 15 minutes around 1910hrs. One of the area ACP (Mumbai Police) went on record to speculate the explosion may have been from a meter box installed at a bus stop. That though, has been now confirmed as a bomb blast. The Opera House blast has been identified as the strongest and most impactful.

5 years after the train blasts and just over 3 after the dreaded 26/11 attacks, Mumbai still doesn’t seem like a safe place after all. The reported order of blasts was Opera House followed by Zaveri Bazaar followed by Dadar Station close to Kabutarkhana.

Its high time the Mumbai Police and its associated arms pull up their socks. Its shameful to see some politicians looking for a silver lining, stating there have been no fatalities (then UNCONFIRMED) and calling the blasts a warning. Govt. Sources have now confirmed 20 deaths and 113 injuries as a result of the blasts. Home ministry has said that they will issue statements on the situation every 2 hours.
