But on Sunday, Sep 14 popular markets of Delhi wore a deserted look. Though an uneasy calm prevailed in the morning at Gaffar Market, Connaught Place and Greater Kailash, which bore the brunt of the serial blast, some shoppers did not let go of the opportunity to visit the markets. By Sunday evening, most of the shops had fairly good number of people.
Security personnel maintained a strict vigil on the public movement and frisked people at metro stations and busy corners. Delhi was filled with police and para-miltary officers.
Everywhere people huddled together, recounting the horrific scenes after the two quick explosions claimed several lives in the area.
Meanwhile, police conducted searches at the sites which have been cordoned off after the blast. The blast sites presented a gory picture with tell-tale marks of blood and personal belonging of the victims strewn on the pavement, normally crowded with shoppers.
Garbage bins across the city were in the limelight as curious passers-by cast a look at the green and blue containers, where many explosives of the serial blasts were kept by the perpetrators.
