Commuter services resumed today at train stations in Mumbai as investigators at sealed-off platforms looked for clues in the wreckage of other trains destroyed in yesterday’s bomb attacks.

Security has been stepped up to try and reassure passengers since its still not clear who was behind the attacks.

The death toll now stands close to 190 after seven bombs went off in stations and packed trains in India’s financial centre.

The Indian authorities have been quick to blame Muslim separatists in Kashmir for the bombings.

Pakistan accused of financing the militants strongly condemned the attacks.

Indian nationalists held protests across the country accusing Pakistan of having a role in the attacks and the Indian government of complacency.
