7 blasts reported in Bangalore

The latest report is that there were 7 blasts in the city. As of now, they seem to have been low-intensity. The areas are Nayandahalli, Madivala, Adugodi on the outskirts, near Mallya Hospital, Langford Road and Richmond Circle. Two blasts were reported in Madivala.

The news is still coming in from different sources. But do try and stay calm. Networks might be jammed so try and be a little patient if you’re trying to get through to your near and dear ones.

The first blast took place at Madiwala check post near Forum Mall. The reported toll so far is 1 and several injured. Gelatin sticks, used for mining etc. was apparently used for the blasts.

    Also, do you know of a map showing the location of all the explosions?
