Three explosions rocked Mumbai during rush-hour today, killing at least 17 people and injuring more than 100 in the city that was the scene of a major terrorist attack nearly three years ago.

The almost simultaneous blasts hit the crowded Dadar neighbourhood, the famed jewellery market Jhaveri Bazaar and the busy business district of Opera House.

The explosions happened around 7pm local time, when all the areas would have been packed with office workers and commuters.

The blasts – if confirmed as a terror strike – would mark the first major attack on Mumbai since 10 militants laid siege to India’s financial capital for 60 hours in November 2008.

Television footage showed dozens of police officials, several of them armed, at the sites of the explosion and at least one car with its windows shattered could be seen.

‘It must be a bomb blast,’ Chhagan Bhujbal, a state minister, said.

The 2008 attack, which targeted two luxury hotels, a Jewish center and a busy train station, was blamed on Pakistan-based militant groups. The attacks escalated tensions between the nuclear-armed rivals and prompted them to suspend peace talks.

However, the talks have recently resumed.

Pakistan’s government expressed distress on the loss of lives and injuries soon after today’s blasts were reported.
