Ahmedabad, Jul 28 (UNI) The city Crime Branch, investigating Saturday's serial bomb blasts that left 49 dead in the business capital of Gujarat, today claimed to have made a vital breakthrough with arrests of two suspects, including a SIMI activist.
Joint Police Commissioner (Crime) Ashish Bhatia told UNI that the crime branch had got hold of some vital information from SIMI activist, Abdul Halim, who has been arrested yesterday from the communally sensitive Danilimbda area of the city and remanded in ten-day custody by a local court today.
Mr Bhatia said similarly the arrest of another person from Limbid town in Surendranagar district this morning is likely to provide some vital clues.
He said Halim is being interrogated by a team of crime branch sleuths after he was remanded to police custody for ten days by a metropolitan court.
Mr Bhatia said though Halim has been arrested in connection with a post-Godhra riot case and is a suspect in the bomb blast that occurred at Nehru Nagar area in Eastern Ahmedabad in 2004, his presence in the city at this juncture, could provide vital clues in the blast case.
