Local groups possibly behind Jama Masjid blasts

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Apr 19 (UNI) After days of veering around mutli-nodal aspects into last Friday blasts at the historic Jama Masjid, police have finally zeroed in on 'local groups' in its probe.

Denying various theories and involvement of ultra groups in the media as mere speculation and devoid of any basis, police sources said it was most likely that the blasts were the handiwork of some local groups.

''Though we look into various angles while investigating such a case, speculations about Lashkar man, Abdul Karim Tunda being behind the blasts were absolutely unfounded.'' Tunda has been almost sidelined and reduced to a petty shopkeeper in Muridke, Pakistan, he said.

''Also, most of his gangmen here have been neutralised. In all about 29 of his men involved in several blasts were made ineffective.'' Mostly the suspicion is on local groups, sources added.

On the bombs being 'improvised' ones, sources said a mere small piece of a battery was found among the rubble which we collected from the April 14 blasts site but no indication of a timer device being attached to it has been found so far. ''Nevertheless, the forensic report could only tell about it finally.'' UNI AN AD KN1958
