Bangalore blast: Burnt vehicles and scared residents

A deafening blast that shattered window panes of several houses and trigerred fire and smoke outside - all in a flash - left residents of one of Bangalore's popular tree-lined residential areas scared. The area is so known for being quiet that residents did not suspect a bomb could have exploded till they saw TV channels reporting that it could be a terror act. Sixteen people were injured in the blast, near the ruling BJP's office in this tech hub.
