Local tailor's involvement in Pune blasts ruled out

August 02, 2012 10:44 IST

A tailor who was being questioned as one of the suspects in the Pune blasts is not a suspect, police sources say.

Dayanand Patil, who was the only person injured in the blast, was questioned as a suspect on Wednesday night.

Police now confirm that Patil, a local tailor, had only picked up the bag out of curiosity when the explosion took place.

It was a routine procedure to question him since, according to the eye witnesses, he was carrying the bag which exploded.

Meanwhile, the police still remain clueless over the motives and also the group, which could have carried out the attack.

All angles of the probe are open at the moment. We are checking in on the intelligence pertaining to the Indian Mujahideen and also some right wing groups, police sources pointed out.

The police have sent the bombs for examination by the forensic sciences lab.

At the moment they are saying that there are traces of ammonium nitrate and also a sticky substance which could be the gel version of the fertiliser.

There are at least 200 police personnel on the job and currently they are looking for leads into the case.
