bangalore bomb blasts of july 2008.

No, no. This post is not about the news. It is rather about the bloggers (like me).

I searched on Google Web: no results talking about it. Google news: no results.

I searched on Rediff and initially, there was a simple text 3 blasts rock Bengaluru; 1 killed, several injured without a link. After a few seconds, they added a link to it, which was possibly wrong. After other few seconds, they updated it to the correct one. It initially contained only this much information:

One person was killed in three blasts that rocked Bengaluru and its outskirts on Friday. Three low-intensity blasts went off at Nayandahalli, Madivala, Adugodi.

One woman was killed and several have been injured. Gelatin sticks appear to have been used in the blasts.

Further details awaited.

The interesting stuff was Google blogs, where I found the following:

  2. iisc Says:

  3. vasim Says:

    ya its very bad news to all Bangaloreans.. 7 bomb blasts caused more than 15 injured and 6 killed…
    wat cud be the reason behind this… and whose hand is behind this….

  4. Sasikumar Says:

    Terror hit Bangalore Friday afternoon as seven low intensity blasts ripped through different parts of the IT city. The explosions took place within a span of half an hous, starting at 1:45 pm. The sites that were targetted were Madiwala, Adugodi area, Koramangla, Hosur Road, Nayandahalli and Shivaji Nagar on Mysore Road and Langford Town.

    All the sites are located in the southern part of the city bordering Tamil Nadu, with some hosting several upmarket malls. These are fairly congested with Madiwala being one of the biggest markets of the city. The blast here took place at the bus stand.

    It may be noted that these areas are mostly the residence of refugee Tamilians and the Hosur Road in fact is a National Higway leading to Chennai.

    Speaking to media Police Commissioner Shankar Bidri said that one woman was killed in Madiwala, while there have been injuries in the other blasts.

    All the wounded have been rushed to nearby hospitals for medical aid. Some have been admitted to St John�s and Mallya hospitals.

    Elaborating on the modus operandi, the Police Commissioner said that crude bombs with timer devices were used. Iron bolts had been fixed to them and each explosion had the intensity of 1-2 hand grenades.

    The blasts are thought to be of low-intensity using gelatin sticks and cylinders buried underground.

    One blast took place near tennis star Mahesh Bhupathi�s house. However barring shattering some window panes, there was no other major damage.

    Forensic experts and bomb disposal squads have reached the targetted sites.

    The authorities have cordoned off the entire locality and sniffer dogs are being used for further clues. Mobile networks have been jammed and major artery roads have clogged due people rushing back home.

    Bidri said that the incident looked pre-planned. He also appealed to Bangaloreans not to panic as the situation was fully under control now.

    The pattern and intensity of blasts indicate the explosions were meant to cause panic rather than claim casualties. Intelligence Bureau has said that they had no prior inkling to today�s incidents.

    Meanwhile, Delhi and other Metros have been put on high alert.

    Bangalore has been on the terror target since the IISc blast that claimed a scientist as a fatality.

    Reports say that near St. Johns Hospital in Madivala bomb is blasted killing a lady.
    Avoid Madivala route as much as possible

    Some info related to the bomb blast material Gelatin…

    Gelignite, also known as blasting gelatin, is an explosive material consisting of collodion-cotton (a type of nitrocellulose or gun cotton) dissolved in nitroglycerine and mixed with wood pulp and sodium nitrate or potassium nitrate. Its composition makes it easily moldable and safe to handle without protection, as long as it is not near anything capable of detonating it. One of the cheapest explosives, it burns slowly and cannot explode without a detonator, so it can be stored safely. It was invented in 1875 by Alfred Nobel, who had earlier invented dynamite. Unlike dynamite, gelignite does not suffer from the dangerous problem of sweating, the leaking of unstable nitroglycerine from the solid matrix.

  7. Global Voices Online » India: Bomb Blasts in Bangalore Says:

    […] iisc life trawls the web for some information and doesn't find much. Bangalore Metblogs has some information on the exact location of the blasts. Keep Sakes points out to the inadequate infrastructure in the city. Already we have no electricity, no petrol, no diesel, no infrastucture, no pavements to drive on (yeah, we drive on pavements, for the lack of space elsewhere), no rains, no metro , not even a proper name to call the city – “bangalore? bengalooru? bengaluroo? what??”… and now, of all things, we have a blast??? Isnt the city already on its way to ruin by itself that one H-A-D to put in a blast into this concotion as well ? […]

  13. nivasan Says:

    this is horrible . there is no security in bangalore

  14. Chetan Says:

    Bangaloreans usually thought that they were safe from all type of natural calamities and other disasters.They turned their mind towards making money
    and left all other things behind them.But fortunately god has thought them a good lesson.Now they will come to know that money is not only the thing in life.Thereis something beyond that.

    Pattern which i could see in blasts heppend in Bangalore and Ahemadabad is both happend in BJP ruling states.If they are planning to continue this ,then next target would be MP or Himachal Pradesh.

  33. how to kill a tree stump Says:

    In the case of removing a tree stump it is often truly infuriating.
    Chopping the tree down isn’t such a mission aided by the proper tools but ridding yourself of the stump is usually a irritation. I have realized that the ideal techniques for stump remover are to make use of a chemical type stump remover or pay money for a stump grinder rental. This tends to make the job tons easier.
