At the time of going to press, 11 people have died and over 80 people injured in a powerful bomb blast outside the Delhi High Court. The Government has announced an exgratia payment of Rs.2 lakhs (approx.US$ 4500/-) for the next of kin and to those injured Rs.1 lakh (approx.US$2250/-).
The Pakistan based terrorist group, Harkat-ul-Jihadi, with strong links to Al Qaeda has claimed responsibility.
What is shameful is that it is now a regular feature for Government to announce cash payment to victims of terrorist attacks.
Is this blood money?
What is shameful is that there were no CTV installed in or around the Delhi Court.
What is shameful is that politicians surround themselves with Z category security while the citizens who voted them into power remain at the mercy of those dangerous elements from across the border.
What is shameful is that the Union Home MInister, Mr.P.Chidambaram, announced in Parliament today that Delhi Police were alerted to a possible terrorist attack in July this year.
What is equally shameful is that the security for Delhi comes directly under the Union Home Minister Mr.P.Chidambaram.
Nothing will change because life is cheap in India.
