Black Wednesday

Today's blast outside the Delhi High Court, which caused heavy casualties, comes three months after a low intensity blast that took place at the same place on May 25, also a Wednesday.

Even the serial blasts in Mumbai on July 13, which killed 18 people and injured 141, also occurred on Wednesday. The 26/11 terror strikes, which is considered one of the biggest attacks in the country, in 2008 had also taken place on a Wednesday.

Though there is no proof that there is a connection between all these blasts which are taking place on Wednesdays, a growing feeling is that it might be next preferred day for terrorists after Friday.

Several major terror attacks had taken place in the country on Fridays including the Mumbai serial blasts in 1993, blasts at Jama Masjid in Delhi in 2006 and the explosion in Mecca Masjid in Hyderabad in 2007.
