As per Rediff News:
Intelligence Bureau hinted on Sunday that the Indian Mujahedeen was responsible for the eight explosions in Patna that claimed five lives ahead of Bharatiya Janata Party’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi’s rally on Sunday.
“Initial investigation has suggested the involvement of the Indian Mujahideen in the serial blasts in Patna. The modus operandi and low intensity bomb blasts are similar to IM’s style,” an IB official told rediff.com, requesting anonymity.
The IB official said that the one man, who was arrested in connection with the attacks, confessed to the involvement of the IM. “More information will come out after the likely arrest of three or four suspects involved in the blasts,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Patna police has sounded high alert across the city. Four live bombs were recovered from different places in Patna, which were defused by security personnel.
Patna Senior Superintendent of Police Manu Maharaj appealed to the people not to touch any suspicious objects and to keep away from crowded places.
