Dr K K Paul, commissioner of police Delhi, claimed that the Delhi police has zeroed down on the suspects behind the Delhi blasts and joint teams of Delhi and Jammu and Kashmir police are now raiding various places along with intelligence agencies to nab the culprits.
Addressing a crowded press conference in New Delhi Paul said that Tariq Ahmad Dar, executive in a multinational company, who was picked up from Srinagar was acting at a fund provider.
"Lashkar-e-Tayiba was behind the blasts. Tariq came to Delhi on 4th of October and went back to Srinagar on 6th of October. And thereafter the conspiracy was hatched to engineer bomb blasts. The other two behind the blasts are Abu Alqama and Abu Hafiza respectively who are acting as Lashkar chiefs in Srinagar and Jammu respectively.
Two of the suspects are residents of Jammu and Kashmir and the other two are foreign nationals. In all, four persons took part in the blasts. Tariq did not participate in the actual crime," he said.
