Of them, only one was critical who was kept in ICU (Intensive Care Unit) and then nine patients went DAMA, which is Discharge Against Medical Advice," said Deepa Lad, Senior Resident Medical Officer (RMO) at Sassoon Hospital.

"They went. Still, we have six patients with us at the hospital and total deceased, who were brought dead here immediately after blast were six, who were sent to the mortuary," she added.

The explosion came a day after India and Pakistan agreed to meet for high-level talks in New Delhi on February 25.
