Hyderabad Blasts
Hyderabad, Feb 23: In a shocking twist in Hyderabad twin bomb blasts case, a "lucky" survivor has become a suspect now. Investigating team of police are believed to have questioning Abdul Wasif Mirza who had received severe leg injuries during the blasts on Thursday, Feb 21 and currently has been admitted to Yasoda Hospital.

23-year-old Mirza, who co-incidentally had survived another terror attack at Mecca Masjid in 2007, has become one of the prime suspects, informed police sources.

According to sources, Mirza informed cops that he had come to Dilsukhnagar to have a cup of tea around 6:30 pm when the twin blasts rocked the city.

It seems that police now are trying to investigate whether Mirza's presence at the two blast sites was merely a co-incidence or he had connections with the culprits.

Mirza, who resides at Kalapathar of old city and a shop owner, had lost one of his legs in the 2007 Mecca Masjid blast.

Thursday's twin blasts killed 16 and over 100 people were injured. Most of the deceased have been identified as young students. Dilsukhnagar is middle class locality with numerous coaching classes and cheap hotels. This was the reason why there were so many students in the area at the time of the blasts.
