Rumination – The word says it all…

One more bomb blast in Bangalore (Bengaluru)

In the wake of recent series of Bomb Blast there has been one more Crude Bomb Blast between 12:00 PM to 01:30 PM in Hoysalanagar, Bangalore. The blast has been report of low intensity and there has not been much damages, including human lives.

It’s not yet confirmed whether it’s similar incident like the one happened on 25st July 2008 or something else like a recent Steam Boiler blast in downtown Bangalore. The incident has been reported on Rediff.com portal.

Update 1 (08 Aug 2008): Strangely even after so many hours (09:12 PM) after the incident there’s no updates coming in on the Bomb Blast. I searched for this incident on other news portals and didn’t find any reference to such an incident. May be it’s just a hoax or may be Rediff.com has got some false news; unless something authenticates the blast.

Update 2 (09 Aug 2008): Finally I can confirm this incident which almost went unnoticed yday. I read in today’s edition of Bangalore Mirror (Bangalore’s local newspaper published by one of the leading newspaper in India – Times Of India). May be the focus was towards the Olympics grand inauguration and media was ignorant in showcasing such non-priority, non-intense incident to unnecessarily create panic and chaos among the public while the primary focus being no one of the world’s most expected and much awaited event in Beijing, China. I personally don’t see anything wrong the way media has handled this unless it’s very intense situation like in the Ahmadabad.
