Terror returned to Delhi a fortnight after the serial blasts with two motorcycle-borne youth dropping a tiffin bomb in a crowded South Delhi market that exploded killing a young boy and injuring 18 people.
Riding a black motorcycle, the two men in black dress and wearing helmets, dropped a black polythene bag containing a tiffin box opposite an electronic goods shop in the flower market in Mehrauli at about 2.15 pm, Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) H S Dhaliwal said.
A 13-year-old boy picked it up to give it back to the bikers. They refused and fled the place but the boy was still keen on giving it to them when it exploded killing him instantaneously and injuring 18 others.
Sincerity and honesty became the death warrant for the child who lost his life in the blast that shook the flower market in Mehrauli of South Delhi on Saturday.
Santosh Kumar (13), who fell victim to the low intensity bomb, was only trying to return the 'packet' of the two motorcycle-borne youth.
Little did Kumar, hailing from Bihar, know that he was trying to return the bomb, which the duo had deliberately dropped.
The last words heard by eyewitnesses and his relations were Kumar saying, ‘bhai saab, aapka packet gir gaya hai (brother, your packet has fallen).’
