The slained RSS worker Joshi is believed to have played a prime role in all blasts.

Bharat Bhai has also been accused of conspiracy and participating in the execution of the Samjhauta Express blast.

Bharat Bhai is likely to be named as the prime accused in all blast cases, ATS officials informed.

He will be questioned over purchase mobile phones, SIM cards and material for improvised explosive devices, sources informed.

Bharat Bhai, as sources claimed, came in the ATS' net when the investigating agency found that Joshi made a call to him (Bharat Bhai) 15 minutes after the Ajmer blast to say the work had been executed.

Joshi also asked him to watch the news on television and inform Aseemanand about it, since he was not able to reach him over the phone, sources informed.

On the other side, A chief judicial magistrate on Saturday, Feb 5 extended Aseemanand's custody along with that of Bharat Bhai.
