Missing SIMI activist behind Jaipur blasts?

May 17, 2008 01:53 IST

The recent serial bomb blasts in Jaipur may have links with Indore as one of the sketches of suspects released by Rajasthan police resembles an activist of the Students of Islamic Movement of India absconding from Indore in Madhya Pradesh.

Though Madhya Pradesh police are tight-lipped in this regard, all the indications are directed towards SIMI activists Abu Faisal, who was arrested from a hotel in the Gwaltoli area of the city in 2006 while attending a meeting of the banned organisation. He was release later on bail.

According to sources, Faisal has been actively involved in anti-national and illegal activities since his release and was absconding after March 27, 2007.

Police Superintendent Anshuman Singh Yadav told PTI that he was unable to say anything on the issue and said that so far Jaipur (Rajasthan) Police had not contacted the state police.

However, he said that Madhya Pradesh police were in search of Faisal, but it has nothing to do with Jaipur bomb blasts.
