‘We did not know what had happened’July 26th, 2008 - 11:15 pm ICT by IANS
Ahmedabad, July 26 (IANS) It took a while for people on an evening stroll in neighbourhoods in the eastern parts of Ahmedabad to realise what was happening as the series of bomb blasts went off Saturday evening. “At first I only heard an explosion. I did now know what was happening. Suddenly there was chaos all around. Nobody could understand,” recalled a horrified Balakrisha Mehta, a software professional returning home in the Maninagar area, where the first blast occurred at 6.45 p.m.
“Then we saw several bicylces reduced to twisted metal and realised it was possibly a terror attack,” he added.
Maninagar is Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s assembly constituency.
“Soon, we joined efforts to rescue the injured and rushing them to the hospital,” Mehta said.
