Indian criminals caused blasts: Bangladesh

September 30, 2005 23:44 IST

Bangladesh on Friday alleged that "criminal elements" in India had colluded with similar groups in Bangladesh and were responsible for the August 17 countrywide bomb blasts.

"Yes. It is the criminals from India who had crossed over and along with criminals in our country, were responsible for the (nationwide) blasts," Director General of Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) Jahangir Alam Chowdhury told reporters in New Delhi.

He was speaking at conclusion of the DG-level talks with his Indian counterpart, R S Mooshahary of the Border Security Force. Mooshahary, however, denied the allegation and said there was only one Indian among the over 500 arrested in Bangladesh after the bombings and added that this person, named Niazuddin had been living in Bangladesh for the past 17 years.
