Hyderabad: Police Friday announced a handsome reward for anybody providing information about the suspects seen in Dilsukhnagar before the twin blasts Thursday evening.

Cyberabad Police Commissioner D. Tirumala Rao Friday appealed to people to give any information they may have about young man seen moving in the area under suspicious circumstances.

"If you have seen a youth carrying something and parking a scooter or a cycle under suspicious circumstances, provide the information to police," he told reporters at the scene of the blasts.

He promised that police would keep the identity of the person giving information a secret. "Handsome reward will be given. It may be Rs.5 lakh, Rs.10 lakh or even Rs.20 lakh depending on the investigations," he said.

Claiming that police have obtained many clues, the police commissioner said he was confident that the case would be cracked. He said the investigations were on at a brisk pace. He, however, refused to share the information saying this may hamper the investigations.

He also declined to answer whether the CCTV cameras installed in the area could capture the image of the terrorists who planted bombs. He, however, remarked that the CCTV camera installed in the middle of the road focussed on the traffic and not to a corner.

The area where the blasts took place falls under the limits of Cyberabad police commissionerate and is close to the limits of Hyderabad police commissionerate.
