Probing all angles to find if terrorists behind blasts

Probing all angles to find if terrorists behind blasts
Maharashtra Home Minister R.R. Patil on Thursday said investigating agencies were probing all angles to determine whether any terror outfit was behind the low intensity serial bomb blasts that rocked the city last night.

"Whether it was a terrorist act or not will be determined only after proper investigations are carried out by Maharashtra ATS, city crime branch and central agencies," Patil told reporters after visiting the four blast sites on J.M. Road here.

Four coordinated low-intensity explosions struck the busy arterial J.M. Road in the heart of Pune on Wednesday night.

The explosions occurred at Jangli Maharaj(JM) road at spots near Balgandharva Theatre, Dena Bank branch, a McDonald food outlet and Garware Bridge.

Asked whether there could be a 'saffron terror' angle to the incident, he said, "All angles are being probed and it will not be proper to comment at this stage."

He said the person injured in one of the blasts-- near Bal Gandharva theatre -- was being treated for minor injuries.
