Ajmer, Oct 13 (UNI) Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil today hinted at crossborder links in the blast in Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti's Durgah here on Thursday, saying there could be a foreign hand behind the terror act which left two people dead and several injured.
Talking to mediapersons after taking on-the-spot stock of the situation in the Durgah Sharif here, Mr Patil said hints from the preliminary investigation suggested that the connections to blast execution were spread beyond the border.
Mr Patil, however, refused to divulge details with the media, in this regard and said it was not an appropriate time.
The Home Minister's observation assumes significance in the light of hints given by the investigative personnel about the possible involvement of Karachi-based Bilal and militant outfit HuJI in the Thursday's blast.
