Eight Years Of Dilsukhnagar Bomb Blasts

It has been eight years since the twin serial bomb blasts at Dilsukhnagar claimed the lives of 17 people in the city.
Hyderabad | 21st February 2021
Eight years have passed since the tragic Dilsukhnagar bomb blasts shook the city.

While 17 people were killed in the incident, some reports had suggested that the number of those injured had crossed 100.

The 2013 serial-blasts began near a tiffin centre near the Konark Theatre in Dilsukhnagar at around 6:58 p m, killing 7 people on the spot. Another blast occurred shortly after, near the Venkatadri Theatre in the same area. Following the explosion, people started running helter-skelter, leading to a stampede in which several people were injured.

A special NIA court, which tried the case, convicted five terrorists of the banned terror outfit Indian Mujahideen, including one Yasin Bhatkal, the reported mastermind of the attack. (Bhatkal was allegedly also responsible for at least ten similar attacks across the country.) The others involved in the case were Zia-ur-Rahman (Waqas), Mohammed Tahseen Akhtar (Hassan), Asadullah Akhtar (Haddi), and Ajaz Shaikh. They were sentenced to death in 2016, three years after the incident.

However, the case remains unresolved as the accused had filed a petition against the death sentence at the Telangana High Court.

The families of the victims had organised a meeting last year, on the seventh anniversary of the vicitms' deaths, to demand that the Telangana government take the necessary steps to implement the death penalty awarded to the five operatives involved in the 2013 terror attack.
