New Delhi, Sep 15 (UNI) Desperate to crack the mystery behind the September 13 blasts, the Delhi Police today received a shot in the arm after being tipped by the Gujarat Police which led to the detention of four men from neighbouring Faridabad in Haryana.

The four men, between 20 and 25 years of age, were detained this morning by sleuths of the Special Cell following Ahmedabad Police's information on likely suspects hiding in the city's neighbourhood, according to sources.

''Initial questioning has revealed that while two of those detained had been living at that address for the past nearly six months, two others had joined them just about a week back.'' The two had taken the accommodation on rent and told their landlord that the 'other two', who joined them lately, were their relatives and would be here for a couple of days only, said sources.

Meanwhile, mystery still surrounds a Santro car which fled after being flagged to stop by the cops stationed at a picket in Lajpat Nagar area in South Delhi last evening.

The car was yet to be traced despite an alert having been sounded soon after the incident took place when the cops were stopping and checking suspicious vehicles in the wake of Saturday's blasts, said another police source.

On the other hand, city's Connaught Place opened its market in full force today, after yesterday's weekly closure, with people going about shopping and conducting business as usual -- reaffirming Delhiites' resolve to bounce back after any setback.

Yesterday, Karol Bagh and Greater Kailash markets too had opened though shoppers were scant in numbers as compared to regular days.
