Police contemplating drawing sketches of suspects
New Delhi, Apr 16 (UNI) Pressed for clues into Friday's twin blasts at the historic Jama Masjid here, police are contemplating drawing sketches of suspects based on eye-witness accounts and the questioning of those 'detained'.
Though senior officials refused to say anything, sources said getting the sketches drawn could enlarge the 'search' ambit and lead to possible clues.
After reports of some people having seen 'suspects', carrying the bags, police are enthused about the possiblity of getting some leads through 'unknown quarters', as they are calling it.
Meanwhile, the sketch theory gained ground among officials, after police 'rounded up' several people and interrogated them. ''Their revelations could possibly help in moving closer to the suspects.'' However, they admit that nothing substantial has come out yet despite several raids being conducted.
On the other hand, life in and around Jama Masjid area in Central Delhi has returned back to normal with routine at the mosque being followed as before the blasts, with increased police patrolling being the only exception.
Also, the injured at the hospital were recovering fast with doctors confirming no body was in a serious condition.
The police, as a precautionary measure, has initiated dialogue with local religious leaders in 'defusing' the tense situation.
This, officials say, was being done to address any simmering discontent among people arising out of the blasts.
Officials said extra vigil was being kept in the mosque vicinity to notice any untoward 'passion arousal' or miscreants taking advantage of the fluid situation and trying to foment trouble.
Fourteen people, including a child, were injured in the April 14 twin blasts at the Jama Masjid, while evening prayers were being offered.
