No specific alert for state

Friday

It may be recalled that four IEDs planted on bicycles had exploded on JM Road, and two others were defused by the Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad. In October, the Delhi police had arrested five persons in connection with the Pune blasts. After the arrest, Delhi police had said two of the arrested suspects, Syed Maqbool and Imran Khan, had conducted a recce of three places including Dilsukhnagar.

Delhi police had said Maqbool helped Imran in conducting a recce of Dilsukhnagar, Begum Bazar and Abids in Hyderabad on a motorcycle under directions from Riyaz Bhatkal.

Amitesh Kumar, Additional Commissioner of Police (ATS) said, "We are probing similarities between the two cases. Our team is already in Hyderabad." Another senior police officer said the team will share information with the agencies probing the Hyderabad blasts.

Pune blasts suspects' posters draw a blank

Maharashtra ATS had put up posters carrying photos of absconding suspects in the Pune blasts case. Home minister R R Patil on Friday told reporters police had not received any response to the posters.
