Patna: The Indian Mujahideen`s Ranchi module was behind the blasts in Bodh Gaya, intelligence sources have told a news agency.

Notably, the same group was behind a series of blasts in Patna, which took place on October 27 ahead of Bharatiya Janata Party`s PM nominee Narendra Modi`s Hunkaar rally in the city.

A news agency has quoted the sources as saying that the National Investigation Agency (NIA) has recovered a document from Ranchi with details of the entire planning, including the placement of each of the 13 bombs.

The Agency also found a list of the men who allegedly planted 13 bombs in the temple complex of Bodh Gaya.

Nine live bombs were recovered and defused by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in collaboration with state police in the Jharkhand capital late Monday, police said.
The bombs were recovered from the room of a private student lodge in the Hindpidi area of Ranchi.

The student who lived in the room in which the bombs were found was missing, and no arrests have been made in this connection.

Ten bombs exploded in Bodh Gaya on July 07 in which two Buddhist monks were injured. Three live bombs were recovered and defused.

Maoists had denied involvement in the blasts.
