The Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) on Sunday asked the government and security agencies to "identify" the terrorist forces responsible for the Hyderabad blasts that killed 42 people and take "pre-emptive steps" to suppress them.
Condemning the two blasts in Hyderabad on Saturday evening, the CPI-M politburo said the incident "underlines how certain terrorist groups are working to disrupt normal life and communal harmony".
"The culprits responsible for this outrage must be caught and brought to book. Since Hyderabad had witnessed a bomb attack in a mosque recently, it is important that the government and the security agencies identify and take pre-emptive steps to suppress such elements," a politburo statement said in New Delhi.
The party also expressed its "heartfelt" sympathy for the injured and for those who have lost their family members.
"The politburo is confident that the people of Hyderabad, along with the rest of the country, will stand united against such nefarious and inhuman violence," the statement said.
