The blasts that rocked the national capital killing at least 20 people and injuring 98 others failed to dampen the spirits of Delhiites, who continued with normal life on sunday.

City hospitals like RML, Jasaram, Lady Hardinge, Ganga Ram and LNJP, where the injured were admitted, saw a hectic activity overnight and in the morning as relatives of the victims came to visit them.

Some people at RML and LNJP hospitals were seen worried as they were not able to trace their relatives since the blasts last night.

"I am trying to locate my brother Raju who went to Connaught Place last evening," a frenzied looking Vivek said as he left RML hospital without a clue.

A police control room official said there have been no reports of disturbance from any part of the city.

Vehicles were seen plying on all city routes, he added.

"Out of the sixty people who were admitted yesterday, 31 have been discharged while the condition of 10 are serious," RML hospital CMO RK Sharma said.

"The condition of three injured, who were admitted at the LNJP hospital, is stable and we will be able to discharge them by this afternoon," Anjan Prakash, spokesperson for LNJP, where the victims were brought from Barakhamba road, said.

Groups of curious onlookers and media personnel, were seen at all the blast sites -- Gaffar Market, Barakhamba Road, Central Park and M Block Market in Greater Kailash.

Meanwhile, security has beefed up across the capital.

"Ninety-eight people are getting treated at various city hospitals while the death toll stands at 20. The overall situation is normal," Delhi Police spokesperson Rajan Bhagat said.
