Had information of blasts, no specific target: Shinde








New Delhi, Feb 21 (IANS) The government had received intelligence warning of blasts taking place in the country but no specific target, Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said Thursday in the wake of the twin blasts in Hyderabad.

"We were receiving information for the last two days that such a blast may take place... there was no input about which city would be targeted," Shinde told reporters here adding that the information was passed onto all the states.

"We cannot speculate about the perpetrators at this point of time," he said further.

Minister of State for Home R.P.N. Singh also said that the government had got intelligence about the blast.

Shinde put the toll at 11 - eight in the first blast and three in the second. He said both the blasts took place within 100 to 150 metres of each other in the crowded Dilsukhnagar, a busy commercial area in the southern part of city, about 15 km from the heart of the city.
