Indore, Mar 15: Haryana Police has summoned a local bags shop owner and two others for questioning tomorrow in the February 18 terrorist attack on the Samjhauta Express, killing about 70 people and injuring 50.

The owner Jenuddin's relative Hujra Shah and an employee Puran Thakur were arrested on Tuesday and taken away as suspects and for not cooperating with the investigation.

Inspector-General Rajendra Kumar (Indore Range) confirmed that the trio, including employees Kadar Bhai and Munna, were summoned. The questioning is likely to take place at Panipat.

Haryana Police claimed that the covers of three unexploded suitcase-bombs, found at the blasts site, were purchased from the shop where similar cloth was seized and sent for laboratory analysis.

A local court issued the transit remand. The Haryana Police team is conducting an investigation here for several days. More than a dozen counterparts have fanned out across India.

Two firebombs had gone off on the New Delhi-Wagah Samjhauta Express near Panipat. Most of the dead, including three children, were Pakistani citizens, the first civilians of that country to have died in a terrorist strike over Indian territory.

The attack came a day ahead of Pakistan Foreign Minister Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri's three-day official visit to New Delhi.
