Two 23-year-old BTech students waiting for a bus home were among those killed in the twin blasts in Dilsukhnagar.
K Ramulu, a deputy commissioner of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC), was also killed in the blasts. Ramulu had parked his vehicle at a bus stop near Konark theatre in the morning and was retrieving it in the evening when the blast occurred killing him instantly
Vijay Kumar and Muthyala Raju were standing near Konark theatre and were waiting for a bus to go to Kothapet when the blast occurred killing both of them instantly. Their friends, Sriram and Suman, who were waiting across the road did not know what happened at first.
"I kept calling Raju's number but could not reach him. After a frantic search we came to Osmania Hospital and came to know that he is no more,'' Suman said over phone.
Even before police and rescue teams could reach the blast spot, people and students started evacuating the injured in autorickshaws and cars.
Among the first bodies to be identified at the Osmania General Hospital were those of Mohammed Rafique of Pattancheru and Aijaz Ahmed of Kothaguda, apparently cousins, who were also killed at the same spot.
They were waiting to take a bus to Pattancheru. A 19-year-old engineering student R Shivani of Dilsukhnagar is the only woman among the 16 dead.
Of the 100-odd people injured, a majority of them are from neighbouring cities and towns including, Warangal, Medak, Huzurnagar, Karimnagar, Zahirabad and Ibrahimpatnam. They are mostly small traders and migrant workers, all waiting for buses to go back home after working in Dilsukhnagar area. K Veeranna, the father of police constable of Mushirabad police station, K Giri, was also seriously injured in the blasts. Five children and at least 12 women are among the injured.
