HuJI may be behind blast

New Delhi, October 12
Harkat-ul-Jehadi Islami (HuJI), a militant outfit of Bangladesh, was suspected to be behind the blast at the sufi shrine of Khwaja Mohiuddin Chisti at Ajmer in which militants used a mixture Tri-Nitro Toluene (TNT) as the explosive material, sources said.

The sleuths of central security agencies, accompanied by forensic experts, found a bag in which another crude bomb had been kept which was possibly intended to go off after the first explosion with an aim to trigger a stampede-like situation at the shrine.

The unexploded device was to be detonated with an alarm of the mobile phone which failed in this case thus saving many lives, sources said. PTI
