Hyderabad- Fourteen people were killed and 119 injured in the twin bomb blasts that rocked Hyderabad Thursday evening, Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said Friday. Talking to reporters after visiting the scene of the blasts and calling on the injured at one of the hospitals, Shinde said six of the injured were in a critical condition.
