The garbage bins across the city were in the limelight on Sunday as passers-by cast a curious look at the green and blue containers, where many explosives of the Delhi serial blasts were kept by the perpetrators.

Most of these waste collectors were kept upside down, throwing their nauseating contents on the ground at many places in the city.

At the Central Park in Connaught Place, all bins were were kept upside down and their contents were scattered all over.

Inquisitive visitors at blast sites like Central Park and Barakhamba road were seen taking pictures of the garbage bins along with the blast spots on their cellphone cameras.

"I was really curious to visit the place. No one is allowed to go inside but still I managed some pictures through my cellphone using the zoom facility", Prashant Jain, present at the Barakhamba road said.

The rotten garbage, which was thrown out of the bins, was seen lying beneath several bins at locations in Central Delhi also.

Those passing through the Inner Circle of Connaught Place stopped their vehicles to have a glimpse of the blast sites.

Elders were seen showing the spot to accompanying children and explaining to them about the blasts in the city.

Many television news channel crews were also spotted capturing visuals of the garbage bins while some reporters did a piece-to-camera using the same garbage baskets in the background.
