Pathetic handling of blasts' aftermath

While a number of worried relatives of victims of Saturday's serial blasts in Delhi [Images] have found their kin, there are numerous others who are searching for their loved ones who are now missing.

For Rani, who is searching for her husband Mukesh Kumar for the last two days, it has been an arduous journey to various city hospitals like Ram Manohar Lohia, Lok Nayak Jai Prakash, Sir Gangaram, Jassaram, Jeevan Mala and Lady Hardinge.

"I have not been able to find him ... even a glimpse of his. He went to the Gaffar market on Saturday to get some gifts for our ten-year-old daughter Bharti," Rani, who is carrying her husband's photograph to every hospital, said.

Another such worried wife was Hemlata, who, with her two young daughters has even lost her husband Deepak's (29) photograph in the grind of finding him at a city hospital.

"He went to the Gaffar market for some work on that fateful day. I really do not have any idea where to find him," a tired-looking Hemlata said.

Mirza Alam, whose 19-year-old nephew Farooq has been missing also turned up at RML on Monday but without any success.

"I think I will now inform Farooq's family in Bihar about his disappearance. I do not know how will his family members take it," Alam said.

Farooq worked as a motor-mechanic at Gaffar market and went to a nearby shop to collect money but after the blast he went untraceable.
