circuit television camera video shot near the spot at that time,
reported local media.

in downtown Hyderabad's crowded Dilsukhnagar commercial area.

the place on a bicycle with a bag hung to its carrier a few
minutes before the blasts, Indo-Asian News Service quoted police

the first blast at Anand Tiffin Center in front of Konark theater
at the site of the explosion. The second blast took place at 19:01
p.m. a few meters away. The bombs at both the places were planted
on old bicycles, according to the report.
