New Delhi: The low intensity blast
outside the Delhi High Court on Wednesday has added one more to Delhi
Police`s list of similar cases in the past three years, most
of which remain unsolved.

After the September 13, 2008 blasts which killed 26
people and injured around 70, the city had witnessed several
minor blasts.
Fifteen days after the September 13 blasts, a low
intensity explosion killed a girl in Mehrauli.

A series of mysterious blasts near IIT in south Delhi
as also the Jama Masjid blast in 2006 and last year along with
the Mehrauli case remain unsolved.

"We are investigating these cases," a senior police
official said.

However, it is yet to be established whether these
incidents are related.
A pressure cooker and a crude circuit were found in
the car which exploded near Jama Masjid with police initially
claiming that it was not a terror attack despite Indian
Mujahideen claiming responsibility for it.

Police believe that the terror outfit hired some local
criminals to carry out the attack.
