Pune blast probe has gone wrong, admits Maharashtra DGP

June 16, 2010 10:47 IST

The Maharashtra Director General of Police D Sivanandan has admitted that the investigations by the state Anti-Terrorism Squad into the February 13 German Bakery terror attack have gone wrong.

"The ATS has to study the case scientifically and collect evidence to identify the group behind the attack", he said, talking to reporters on the sidelines of a function in Pune on Tuesday night. Sivanandan said he was aware that four months had passed since the incident

but stressed that the investigating agency should not be put under pressure of a time frame.

"The first mistake was the blast and second wrong investigation. What we need is a right investigation at the right time," the police chief who was in Pune to inaugurate an induction course for the state CID officers, remarked. A Sessions court in Mumbai on Tuesday granted bail to Abdul Samad, arrested by the ATS in an arms case and for suspected involvement in the Pune terror attack.
