“We will never come back to Pune,” said Jayprakash Mehta, whose son Aditya (23) died on Wednesday, taking the toll in the Pune blast to 11.
A resident of Rohini in northwest Delhi, Aditya came to Pune four years ago to study electronics engineering. He and a friend were at a central table in German Bakery on Saturday when the bomb exploded. Both of Aditya’s legs had to be amputated because of excessive bleeding. He died at Jehangir Hospital on Wednesday morning. The friend also lost a leg.
“We’ll go to his room to collect some of his memories and never come back to Pune,” Jayprakash said.
At least 37 more victims are still undergoing treatment in various city hospitals. The bomb in backpacks -- a mixture of RDX and ammonium nitrate -- injured 57 people in all.
The well-known German Bakery in the fashionable Koregaon Park area was packed on the eve of Valentine's Day when the bomb went off. (With IANS input)
