New Delhi, Sept 16 : Union Health Minister Dr. Anbumani Ramadoss visited the Ram Manohar Lohia hospital here today to meet the victims of serial blasts in the capital and said he was satisfied with the services offered by the medical centre.

After visiting several wards where many injured are being treated, Ramadoss said, "We are satisfied with what the RML is doing. The newly built trauma centre has played a major role. All doctors have rushed to the hospital on a short notice and worked throughout the night."

Ramadoss was accompanied by Minister of State for Health Panabakka Lakshmi and other health officials.

Five bombs exploded in quick succession in crowded markets and busy streets in Delhi on Saturday, killing 20 and injuring at least 90.

Two bombs went off in dustbins in and around Connaught Place, a shopping and dining area popular with tourists and locals in the city centre but the maximum causalities were caused by a bomb placed in an auto-rickshaw in a crowded market. The bombs exploded within minutes of each other.

Jaipur, Ahmadabad and Bengaluru were hit by serial blasts in recent months killing and injuring hundreds of people.

An outfit "Indian Mujahideen" has claimed responsibility for the blasts but authorities suspect it to be an offshoot of the SIMI.
