"We think Qayamuddin, one of the accused in the Ahmedabad blasts cases, could be behind the Delhi blasts. He could be involved in planting the bombs in different parts of New Delhi," joint Commissioner of Police Ashish Bhatia said.

"There is a possibility that other SIMI members, who are wanted in the Ahmedabad blasts cases, could be involved in the Delhi blasts," Bhatia added.

Names of Abdul Subhan and Qayamuddin had come up in the Ahmedabad blasts. They are in the 'most-wanted' list of the state police in connection with the serial blasts in the city.

Both of them are absconding after the explosions.

Terrorists have accomplished Operation BAD

Qayamuddin, a resident of Vadodara, had conducted number of meetings in the city to plan the terror attacks. He had stayed in Ahmedabad for over a month prior to the serial blasts.

SIMI's Hubli meeting was key

Police also claimed that Qayamuddin was also present at the terror training camps held in Kerala [Images] and Halol in Gujarat.

Abdul Subhan who was working with a multinational computer firm in Mumbai had left his job and joined SIMI. He is expert of computers and is also believed to have wide knowledge about making of bombs, says Gujarat police.
