Guwahati, Nov 2 (UNI) The attempts of Assam Police at putting together the baffling puzzle over real owners of vehicles used for planting bombs during Thursday's serial blasts in the state received some success with the arrest of a car-lifter today.

Police said one Muzammil Haq, in possession of a Bangladeshi visa, was nabbed from Lakhimpur town in northern Assam this afternoon after he eluded police for the past two days.

Muzammil has reportedly admitted to be a car lifter and he was being brought to Guwahati for further interrogation, police said adding another Amarul Haq was also picked up with him.

Police was on the lookout for Muzammil in connection with the CJM campus blast in Guwahati after the registration number of the Maruti car used at the site was traced to a motorbike.

'' One Zulfikar Ali was arrested from Nagaon on Friday against whose name the bike is registered. Zulfikar's statements led on Muzammil's trail. The real picture regarding the involvement of these youths in the blasts is yet to emerge as contradictory statements are being furnished,'' police said.

Meanwhile, one Tikendra Saikia was arrested from Nagaon yesterday and he, along with his wife Jonali, were brought to Guwahati after it was found that the chassis number of the car used in the CJM campus blast belonged to a vehicle owned by the couple.

They had, however, claimed of having sold it through Maruti True Value outlet a couple of years back, police informed.

The name of Tauqeer, a suspect in connection with the blasts at Ahmedabad, Delhi and Mumbai, has also emerged, with intelligence agencies claiming of intercepting messages, including those which were transmitted across the borders, point to the jehadi groups.

However, no firm confirmation has been given by the authorities even as special teams arrived from Jaipur and Delhi to assist the Assam Police in the investigations.

The NSG sleuths today visited the Kokrajhar blast sites and collected evidences. The police is also preparing sketches of two suspects in CJM campus blasts based on the description by a city-based lawyer.
