Good that others too have similar goals: Bhatkal on Bodh Gaya blasts

Patna, Aug 30: Indian Mujahideen (IM) co-founder Yasin Bhatkal, who was arrested in the wee hours of Thursday from near the India-Nepal border following a prolonged mission of the Indian intelligence agencies, reportedly said that the IM was not involved in the July 7 serial blasts in the pilgrimage town of Bodh Gaya but lauded the terror act saying it was good to see others working with a similar goal.

The 30-year-old, who was caught with two other aides, also remarked in a court in Bihar that bomb blasts are nothing new and a common occurrence. Bhatka, who hails from northern Karnataka, was interrogated by members of the National Investigation Agency.
