Hyderabad, August 26, 2007

Speaking to media, the Home Minister, K Jana Reddy said that the government is contemplating the revival of COCA with some modifications. A system will be put in place to suggest measures to check terror groups.

The Chief Minister confirmed the involvement of Pakistan's ISI and Bangladesh based terror group Harkat-ul-Jehad-al-Islami behind the blasts. He announced an ex gratia of Rs.5 lakhs to each of the victims' families besides government job to the families who lost their bread winner. He added that all the injured have been shifted to various corporate hospitals and the government would bear the medical expenditure. He also announced a compensation of Rs.20,000 to those who suffered with minor injuries.

In an all party meeting that was chaired by the Chief Minister, the Opposition parties however, held the State Government responsible for the unfortunate incident.
