MUM­BAI, In­dia — There are no im­me­di­ate sus­pects in the triple bomb­ing that killed 17 peo­ple in In­dia’s fi­nan­cial cap­i­tal and the at­tack came with­out warn­ing, the coun­try’s top se­cu­rity of­fi­cial said Thurs­day, while shell­shocked res­i­dents lam­basted the gov­ern­ment for the ap­par­ent in­tel­li­gence break­down.

The bomb­ings, which shook three sep­a­rate neigh­bor­hoods within min­utes of each other dur­ing Wed­nes­day’s busy evening rush hour, were the coun­try’s worst ter­ror strike since the siege of Mum­bai that killed 166 peo­ple 31 months ago.

Home Min­is­ter Pala­niap­pan Chi­dambaram said In­dian in­tel­li­gence had re­ceived no warn­ing be­fore the lat­est blasts of a pos­si­ble at­tack on Mum­bai.

“Who­ever has per­pe­trated this at­tack has worked in a very, very clan­des­tine man­ner,” he said at a news con­fer­ence af­ter an emer­gency se­cu­rity meet­ing.

He said po­lice were look­ing into “ev­ery pos­si­ble hos­tile group” in their search for the cul­prits.
