At least 13 people were killed and 80 others injured Wednesday in a series of explosions that rocked congested areas of India's financial capital, Mumbai, CNN's sister station in India, CNN-IBN, reported, citing Prithviraj Chavan, the chief minister of Maharashtra.
Police said the explosions occurred within minutes of one another in the Dadar, Opera House and Zaveri Bazaar areas, all busy commercial areas that were teeming with people in the evening rush hour.
"The sound was absolutely deafening," said Hemant Mehta, who was in the Opera House area, near Mumbai's diamond market, a small epicenter of the city's economy.
