Jaipur, Ahmedabad and in the national capital in 2008 by
suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorists who worked in close
coordination.

September 13, 2008, serial blasts here started putting forth
the arguments on the charges that are likely to be framed
against the accused.

the contents and the texts in the all the electronic
communications were same, showing that they were sent by the
people having close links.

inconclusive and would resume on July 13.

against as many as 14 accused arrested so far in the five
cases registered in connection with the serial blasts here.
