Samjhauta blasts: 2 arrested

Indore, March 14
In the first arrests in the Samjhauta Express blasts case, the police today took into custody two suspects who had allegedly provided suitcase covers to the perpetrators of the terror attack near Panipat.

Abhinandan Bag Centre owner Huzaifa and manager Poonam Singh Thakur were arrested by the Haryana police, which claimed that the duo had supplied covers for the suitcases in which the explosives were kept.

Police sources said they had established that the covers of the suitcases in which the bombs were planted were stitched by the duo.

The two suspects were being questioned by a Haryana police team, which produced them in a local court late last evening for transit remand to take them to Panipat.

It was not yet established whether the Kodak 24-inch suitcases were purchased from here.

The inferior quality suitcases, costing about Rs 200, were being supplied by a Mumbai-based firm. PTI
