Hyderabad bomb blasts: Prime Minister to visit city today
New Delhi Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will on Sunday visit Hyderabad, where bomb blasts on Thursday evening left 16 people dead and more than a hundred injured.

Dr Singh is expected to visit the injured in hospitals besides being briefed about the investigation by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Kiran Reddy.

Two bombs exploded within a span of minutes at Dilsukhnagar in Hyderabad on Thursday. The Manmohan Singh government on Friday came under attack in Parliament, with the Opposition saying it was being causal about terror.

The Prime Minister has condemned the blasts as a "dastardly" act and assured that the culprits will not go unpunished.

Dr Singh has sanctioned Rs 2 lakh each for the families of those killed and Rs 50,000 each to those seriously injured from the Prime Minister's Relief Fund.
