Terror is back to haunt Abdul Wasif Mirza. He lost his leg in the 2007 Mecca Masjid blast (which killed 17 people) and in Wednesday’s blast at Hyderabad’s Dilsukh Nagar he was among the 119 injured. (Sixteen people were killed.)
Thursday was like any regular day for the 25-year-old -- he was selling tee-shirts on the pavement near the bus stand in the busy market place when the bomb went off injuring his back.
And the memories of the 2007 nightmare came rushing back. After years of treatment, Abdul was picking up the pieces and moving on. But to his ill luck, he once again fell prey to terror.
Abdul has sustained severe injuries on his back. “The impact of the blast was bad. We found shrapnel in his back and it may have damaged his spine,”
