3 held for supply of bomb material

(The Times of India) HYDERABAD: Two days after the twin blasts rocked the city, the police on Monday detained three persons in Bhongir of Nalgonda district in Andhra Pradesh, who they suspect supplied metal balls used along with the explosives.

Special teams formed after the Saturday’s blasts are interrogating the three, said to be cycle shopowners, but so far no definite clue has emerged, sources said.

On Monday, the city woke up to a string of bomb threat calls, but all of them turned out to be hoax. Hyderabad police commissioner Balwinder Singh said the probe has been handed over to the city police’s special investigation team (SIT).

“The investigation will be headed by additional commissioner (crime) M Punna Rao,” Singh said. The police teams were also sent to Nagpur to establish the origin of explosive material used in the blasts.

“We have collected physical evidence from the scene of crime at both the places,” Singh said. The evidence gathered would be compared with past terror attacks in the city, like the Mecca Masjid blast in May, to identify the group behind the attacks, he added.

The commissioner said ammonium nitrate was used in the explosives, which were detonated by timer devices. “The explosive material was purchased from Nagpur,” he said.

The commissioner, however, said no one has been detained by the Nagpur police in this connection.

Singh said the police were also investigating links with the fake currency seized on Saturday.
