Investigators Probing Involvement of Pak-based JuD in Pune Blast

In connection with explosion in Pune’s German Bakery, the centre is investigating role of Pakistan based terrorist outfit Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), reported ANI.

In a bid to ravel identity of those involved in Saturday’s blast, the investigating agencies are also probing visited by US terror-suspect David Coleman Headley, report said.

As the attack occurred merely ten days after warning by JuD leader Abdur Rehman Makki, the Centre did not rule out the possibility of its involvement, said report.

Investigating agencies are claiming that Pune blast is a joint work of Indian Mujahideen and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) activists, said report.

Talking to a leading TV news channel, Union Home Secretary GK Pillai said that government did not rule out the Pakistani connection in the gruesome attack, report said.

Pillai was quoted as saying, “Seeing that just recently the JuD had made the statement saying that Pune is a fair target, we will have to link one and the other and then think that some of these agencies in Pakistan are behind the (Pune) blast.”

Pillair, nonetheless, said that it would be too early to come to a conclusion, report said.

On Sunday, after inspection of blast site, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram renewed his demand for access to US terror-suspect David Coleman Headley.

The bomb, which killed nine people and wounded at least 57, is seen as the first major attack on India since the 2008 Mumbai massacre and appeared to target Indian and foreign tourists.

The blast took place at the German Bakery, located close to the Osho Ashram and Chabad House, a Jewish prayer house, at around 7 p.m. on Saturday.

Nine people, including two foreigners, were killed and around 57 injured including 12 foreign nationals- five Iranians, two each from Sudan and Nepal, one each from Yeman, Taiwan and Germany in Saturday”s bomb blast at the German Bakery.
