Mumbai, May 14 (UNI) The woman, who reportedly went missing in Jaipur after the serial blasts there, is suspected to be a member of the 'Shaheen force', a womens' wing of the Students Islamic movement of India (SIMI), Maharashtra Director General of Police A N Roy said today.

However, the women wing of SIMI was not active in Maharashtra but as per reports, an autoricksha driver had disclosed the name of a woman to the investigating agencies. He said she offered to pay him Rs one lakh for doing a 'job', Roy said.

Considering all the reports, it could be surmised that she might be a member of that organisation, he told reporters.

There was no similarity between the blasts here in 2006 and the Jaipur serial blasts, he said. sixty five People were killed and 150 injured in last evening's blasts.

Mr Roy said the Anti-terrorist squad (ATS) was constantly in touch with Jaipur police and a team would be sent there to assist the investigating agencies, if needed.

Meanwhile, security had been beefed up across the state and intensive patrolling undertaken at crowded places like temples, railway stations, airport and bus stands.
