Eagle Teleconferencing Offers Free Services to India Bomb Victims, Aid Agencies

By Michael Dinan, TMCnet Editor

An international teleconferencing provider with offices in Manhattan as well as Bangalore, India, said today that it’ll provide free services to the victims of synchronized bombings that The Associated Press says killed at least 45 people in western India over the weekend.
Officials at Eagle Conferencing say they’ll offer the services to businesses, victims, families, and organizations involved in recovery operations through Aug. 31.
Kent Charugundla, founder and chief executive officer of the company, which also provides IVR and voicemail services, said Eagle officials are concerned about the bombings and the effect they’ve had on Bangalore as well as nearby Ahmedabad.
“It clearly demonstrates need for the business community to reach out to our society,” Charugundla said. “Our free conferencing services will be available to all qualified businesses and families 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Callers may stay on conference for as long as they wish to talk with others or utilize the services to coordinate recovery operations. We have global annual capacity of over ten billion minutes and we can accommodate large volume of traffic on our global intelligent bridge network at any time.”
According to the AP, police are carrying out raids in order to find the heinous crimes’ perpetrators.
The news service quotes Mumbai police chief Hassan Gafoor, who says that police there raided the home of an American citizen and seized a computer from which an e-mail claiming responsibility for the attack was believed to have been sent.
At least 16 bombs tore through Ahmadabad around dusk Saturday, according to the AP, killing 45 people and wounding 161 others. The attacks marked the second series of blasts in India in two days, according to the AP.
The AP says that an obscure Islamic militant group, the Indian Mujahideen, claimed credit for bombings, sending out an e-mail to Indian TV stations just minutes before the killings started.
The e-mail said: “In the name of Allah the Indian Mujahideen strike again! Do whatever you can, within 5 minutes from now, feel the terror of Death!”

Eagle Conferencing officials say their goal is to continue as a solid corporate citizen with highly reliable service provider, and excellence in quality. Officials with the company say they won’t limit the number of minutes a family can use.
“Any one interested in our service can call our office at 080-6576-6600 to speak to a representative or visit our website to register for this offer,” company officials say.
