All the national newspapers carried the blast news as their main headlines. Some articles made an observation of the fact that terror struck the capital yet again on a Saturday, Sep 27, less than a fortnight after the serial blasts ripped through the city. There were very few people on the street where the blast had taken place and the shops had not opened early in the morning.
Those visiting their relatives and friends at the hospital in the morning raised concerns over the security arrangements in the country.
"Security has become just a mockery. They don't identify people. We don't even know that with whom we are mingling with in the crowd," said Devansh Mishra, a friend of one of the blast injured.
The bomb that left a crater on the road has left behind deep wounds in the hearts of the people also but they feel that it is not the time to allow terror to engulf the society and that it should be fought back. "Blast does spread little terror but then life doesn't stop. The government should do something unless there are stringent laws against terrorism, we will have to face these incidents," said Santosh, a resident.
