Lucknow, Oct 28 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh police is taking no chance this time after Hindu fundamentalist were allegedly found involved in the Malegaon blast.

The state police had already investigated all the connections of any organisation with those who have been arrested in the Malegoan incidents in Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh.

A senior police official here today said till date nothing was found connecting UP with those arrested in the Malegaon blast.

The Anti-terrorist Squad (ATS) wing of the state police had already probed all the call details of the mobile phones of two Bajranj Dal members Bhupendra Singh and Rajeev Mishra, who were killed in an explosion, which took place in a room in Kanpur on August 24 last.

''We have not found anything suspicious nor these two people have called on any of the phones of the arrested people in the Malegaon blast,'' sources said.

On August 24, Bajrang Dal members Bhupinder Singh and Rajeev Mishra, had died in the explosion at a room in Rajeev Nagar in Kanpur. Grenades, batteries, explosives and timer watches were recovered from the spot.

Earlier, the ATS of UP had sought the help of its Maharashtra counterpart in solving the case of the Kanpur blast involving the Bajrang Dal members.

During the investigation police had found that Rajiv Mishra, one of the two men killed in the blast, frequently called on two cellphone numbers in Mumbai from his residence in April and May.

Both numbers gave no response after the blast.

On verification, the ATS had found that the proof of address and identity submitted to the cellphone operators for getting these connections were fake.

On October 22, Maharastra police had arrested three persons from Indore in connection with the Malegaon bomb blasts amid suspicions that Hindu extremist groups could be involved in the recent explosions in Malegaon and Modasa in Gujarat.

The Maharashtra police was suspecting that the trio -- Shyam Lal, Dilip Nahar and Dharmendra Bairagi-- had stolen the motorcycle which was used for Malegaon blasts in which five persons were killed on September 29 last.

Rashtriya Jagran Manch (RJM) had been charged with the Malegaon blast and its president Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, had already been arrested for her alleged involvement in the blast. The RJM is said to have been formed after the July 3 communal riots in Indore this year, in which eight people were killed.
