:: 2008 Ahmedabad bombings ::
The 2008 Ahmedabad bombings were a series of seventeen bomb blasts that hit Ahmedabad, India, on July 26, 2008, within a span of seventy minutes. Forty-nine people were killed and over one hundred and sixty were injured. Ahmedabad is the cultural and commercial heart of Gujarat state, and a large part of western India. The blasts were considered to be of low intensity, and were similar to the Bengaluru blasts which occurred the day before.
Several TV channels said they had received an e-mail from a terror outfit called Indian Mujahideen claiming responsibility for the terror attacks; however, Islamic militant group Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami has claimed to be responsible for the attacks.In 2002, Gujarat suffered from communal riots.
These bombings occurred a day after the Bengaluru blasts and a day before a bomb blast in the Indian state of Jharkhand .
