Twelve blasts rocked Ahmedabad on Saturday evening. Cycles were probably used to plant the bombs, G K Parmar, joint commissioner of Ahmedbad police, told Eight people were feared killed in the blasts.

Parmar said that the police are on the lookout for more live bombs. The blasts were reported from crowded areas like Mani Nagar, Bapu Nagar, Diamond Market, Sarnagpur, Raipur, Jawahar Nagar, Hatkeshwar, Narol circle in the old part of the city.

One of the blasts occurred inside a bus. Another blast occurred outside the Bapu Nagar station.

Mani Nagar is Chief Minister Narendra Modi's constituency.

According to the police, all of them were low-intensity blasts. Over thirty people were reportedly injured in the blasts.

Gujarat has been put on high alert following the serial blasts in the city. Security has been beefed up across the state, particularly in state capital Gandhinagar, and special police teams were deployed at vulnerable places, said Gujarat Home Minister Amit Shah.

He said the government would take all measures to maintain law and order. 

Sources said that minutes before the blasts, the Intelligence Bureau received a mail from the Indian Mujahideen, which stated, "Stop us if you can."

The Ahmedabad serial blasts come a day after two people were killed in seven serial blasts that shook Bengaluru.

Bapunagar, Isranpur and Raipur, where the blasts have taken place, are considered to be  communally sensitive areas.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh  has condemned the Ahmedabad blasts and appealed for calm.

Ahmedabad: Seventeen low-intensity blasts rocked Ahmedabad on Saturday evening. The blasts happened in Maninagar, Bapunagar, Hatkeshwar, Sarnagpur Bridge, Amraiwadi, Govindwadi, Sarangpur, Chakla area, Jawahar Chowk and Juhapura.

Except for the blast in Juhapura, all others took place in eastern part of the city.

The first blast took place in Maninagar, which is the Assembly constituency of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi. According to initial reports the bomb in Maninagar was planted in a bicycle. There was a second blast in Maninagar area inside the LG Hospital premises.

The blast inside the hospital took place below a red-coloured car, which caught fire.

In Bapunagar the blast took place outside the railway station while one of the blast took place inside a bus. The blasts occurred within a span of 70 minutes between 1830 hrs IST and 1940 hrs IST. Some of the bombs were hidden in tiffin boxes.

Initial reports say about 30 people have been taken injured and six have been taken to the civil hospital in Maninagar. No deaths have been reported so far.

However, Gujarat Home Minister Amit Shah confirmed about only three blasts.

A black coloured Hero Honda Splendor motorcycle has been found abandoned near the blast site in Maninagar.

Ahmedabad railway station has been sealed.

Some of the blasts took place in communally sensitive areas of the city. CNN-IBN's Editor-in-Chief Rajdeep Sardesai reports that the blasts were aimed at creating panic and not really at causing heavy causalities.

The Intelligence Bureau had received an e-mail from a little known terror group called Indian Mujaheedin about a possible attack, reports Sardesai.

Union Minister of State for Home Sri Prakash Jaiswal said, "The blasts seem to be along the lines of yesterdays Bangalore blasts. It is a conspiracy to unsettle the country. All metros are on a high alert."

An emergency meeting is going on at Modi's residence and the Chief Minister is likely to visit the blast areas soon.

Coordinator of the United Christian Forum for Human Rights Father Cederic Prakash appeals for calm.

"I sympathise with those affected. Every single member of civil society should maintain peace and communal harmony," Prakash says.

The serial bomb blasts in Ahmedabad come just a day after a series of blasts rocked Karanataka capital Bangalore. In Bangalore, too, nine low-intensity blasts had taken place on Friday afternoon killing two people and injuring six others.   Site Designed & Maintained By: Kismat. N. Raval
