The death toll in the twin blasts that rocked Andhra Pradesh capital Hyderabad last month touched 17 after an injured person died late on Tuesday night, reports said on Wednesday.

The deceased person was identified as Amrutha Ravi.

25-year-old Amrutha Ravi suffered a heart attack and died at Yashoda Hospital in Hyderabad, reports said.

A Delhi court on Tuesday issued a non-bailable warrant (NBW) against banned terror group Indian Mujahideen (IM) founder Riyaz Bhatkal and nine others in connection to the twin bomb blasts in Hyderabad.

The special National Investigation Agency (NIA) court issued NBWs against Amir Reza Khan, Iqbal Bhatkal, Mohsim Chaudhary, Dr Shahnawaz Alam, Asadullah Akhtar, Ariz Khan, Mirza Shadaab Beg, Mohd Khalid and Mohd Sajid.

All of them are alleged IM operatives.

More than 100 people were injured in the twin blasts that ripped through a crowded area in Hyderabad last month.
