Promised to return home before blast, merchant meets death
Hyderabad: The 45-year-old cloth merchant, Mohd Amanulla Khan, had called up his family before the twin blasts here promising to return home soon.
But he fell victim to the deadly blasts that left a total of 16 dead.
Khan had called his family members around 5.30 pm yesterday to say that he is going to Dilsukhnagar for some work and that he would return home after that.
As fate would have it, he never answered calls after the blasts and his body was found among the dead in the mortuary of the Osmania General Hospital, his son Kamran said.
"We were searching all hospitals. We came to Osmania Hospital this morning and found him dead," he said.
Fighting back tears, the young son recalled that his father had plans to go for Haj as he had performed the marriage of his only daughter.
