Hyderabad twin blasts: One man detained in Old City

HYDERABAD: One man has been detained in Hyderabad on Friday in connection to the twin blasts that rocked the city on Thursday claiming 14 lives and injured 110 people, according to a NDTV report.

The arrest comes after criticism from the opposition party the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for not taking the intelligence report seriously.

Two powerful near simultaneous bomb blasts ripped through a crowded area close to a cluster of bus stands in Dilsukhnagar area in Hyderabad on Thursday.

Earlier, both the houses of Parliament were adjourned till noon after the BJP-led opposition created a ruckus over last evening's twin blasts in Hyderabad in which at least 14 people killed and several others injured.

In the Rajya Sabha, the BJP said it wanted a debate on the Hyderabad blasts and refused to let the Upper House function.

Minister of State for Home R.P.N. Singh told the House that Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde had gone to Hyderabad and would probably make a statement in Parliament after he returned to the national capital at 2:30 p.m.

After failing to restore calm in the house, Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari finally adjourned proceedings till noon. (With inputs from the Agencies)
