February 22, 2013 11:15 IST

Bharatiya Janata Party President Rajnath Singh will visit Hyderabad on Frisday to meet the injured and family members of those killed in the twin blasts in the city.

Rajnath, accompanied by BJP MP and spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain and party secretary Murlidhar Rao, is likely to visit the Dilsukh Nagar area of Hyderabad where the two blasts took place on Wednesday evening.

The BJP leaders will also visit the hospitals where the injured are being treated and later meet the kin of those killed.

The BJP has demanded suspension of the Question Hour in Lok Sabha to discuss the terror issue.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, Singh had condoled the death of innocent people in the blast and demanded that immediate steps be taken to provide relief to the injured.

Fourteen people were killed and 119 injured, six of them critically when two powerful near simultaneous blasts ripped through a crowded area close to a cluster of bus stands in Dilsukh Nagar area in Hyderabad on Wednesday.

The blasts triggered by Improvised Explosive Devices tied to two bicycles took place at two sites 100 metres apart outside a roadside eatery near Konark and Venkatadiri theatres in the area located on the Hyderabad-Vijaywada National Highway in Cyberabad police limits.
