Thane auditorium blast: Two arrested in Mumbai

June 16, 2008 12:34 IST

Two persons have been arrested in Mumbai in connection with the Thane auditorium blast earlier this month that left seven people injured.

The two men, who were arrested on Sunday night, are suspected to be part of a right wing organisation, the Anti-Terrorism Squad said on Monday.

Seven people were injured in an explosion at the Gadkari Rangayatan auditorium's parking lot before the staging of the play Amhi Pachpute on June 4. Some Hindu organisations had protested against the play, alleging misrepresentation of mythological characters.
