An Indian-American Muslim advocacy group has strongly condemned the serial blasts in New Delhi in which nearly 20 people were killed and scores of others were injured.

The Indian Muslim Council of USA, in a statement said, "We denounce these bomb blasts in the strongest possible terms and express our condolences to the victims and their loved ones."

"Our sympathies are with the victims and their families," said IMC-USA President Rasheed Ahmed.

The group has demanded a "through and transparent" investigation into the incident to ensure that its culprits are brought to the book.

Five synchronised blasts took place in New Delhi last evening. A terrorist group called Indian Mujahideen claimed responsibility for the blasts.
