Hyderabad Terrorised

The under construction Punjagutta flyover collapsed, adding on to the already terrorised atmosphere of Hyderabad. The city seems under siege as paramilitary forces have take over. There are groups of CRPF personnel every few hundred yards, where earlier ‘normal’ policemen were not to be found for kilometers around. People are being stopped in the street and are being frisked. I was returning from a friends marriage reception in an auto, and was stopped and thoroughly searched along with the auto and the driver. If I had not been at this marriage function, I definitely would have been there in the general area of Punjagutta.

The TV is showing horrible pictures of mangled bodies lying in the shattered cars crushed under humongous slabs of concrete.
