- Hindustan Times

At 5:48 pm, 5:49 pm, 5:50pm, 5:51 pm today, four CNG buses exploded semi simultaneously in the middle of heavy traffic near the New Delhi Railway Station in Delhi, India. Witnesses suggest that one of the suicide-bombers shouted slogans concerning the independence of Kashmir before triggering the bombs held inside his backpack. The death toll is unknown at this time as the emergency responders lock down the area and evacuate the injured. Our analysts estimate that the death toll could potentially rise to 100 with several hundred more injured, making this one of the deadliest terrorist attacks in years.

The New Delhi Railway station has shut down all incoming and outgoing transit. The police are having difficulties responding to the situation and the civilian population is noticeably panicked. These attacks are strikingly reminiscent of the 2008 bombings, where the Lashkar -e-Taiba bombed a hotel in Mumbai.
