Patna blasts: NIA hunting for more suspects

November 06, 2013 13:02 IST

Amidst reports that security agencies were looking for a girl student from Bokaro in connection with Patna serial blasts, the National Investigation Agency on Wednesday said a few more suspects are on the radar of the agency. 

"The investigation is building up on some suspects, but we can’t reveal anything at this stage," said a senior police officer 

He was asked about reports that the National Investigation Agency was looking for a girl student from Bokaro in connection with the serial blasts in Patna and Bodhgaya.


The NIA, which is simultaneously working on the Bodhgaya blasts that had left five injured in July this year, is being actively assisted by Jharkhand Police in raids in various places, the officer said.

They raided Chakla village on the outskirts of Ranchi on Tuesday to trace a person in whose name a room was booked in a lodge at Hindpiri in Ranchi, where police recovered nine timer-fitted bombs, detonators and gelatine on Monday, police said.
