"Though the conspiracy has a pan-national angle, it could not have been possible without the local support," a government official said. The investigating agencies are after the locals who helped in carrying out such a massive operation. They have also launched combing operations to nab them, the officials said. Both the Ahmedabad [Images] and Surat [Images] police forces have launched massive combing operations in various parts of the cities to nab the locals involved in terrorist acts.
Surat police commissioner R M S Brar also believes that the planting of so many bombs in the city was not possible without the local support. "A terrorist operation of such a massive scale is not possible without local support. The planting of bombs, the selection of places, transportation of explosive materials was not possible without locals," Brar told PTI.
