Mangled remains of a bus

Mangled remains of a bus, cycles, motorcycles and auto along with splattered blood was all that was left after nearly a dozen serial bomb blasts ripped through the city of Ahmedabad.

Complete panic spread as people ran for their lives almost leading to a stampede in the areas where the blasts occurred.

One body lay on the road waiting for quick removal by police who had descended on the scene trying to keep away curious onlookers and vehicles.

What lay right in the middle of one of the roads was a state government CNG bus ripped through from the middle as one of the blast had taken place in it.

The outer body of the bus was completely shattered even as surprisingly most of the seats remained intact including the
CNG tank.

Blood was seen splattered inside the bus and near the foot board. Muslims along with Hindus could be seen rushing injured persons to the ambulances.

The scene outside civil hospital was just short of a riot with people thronging the hospital even as ambulances with sirens were seen driving right between them.

"There is heavy traffic jams in areas around Mani Nagar, the CM's constituency where one of the blasts took place Number of ambulances are also seen zipping around," said Udit, a city resident.

Forensic personnel could be seen scurrying through the blasts scenes even as policemen tried to maintain a cordon.
