Panaji: Goa police on Monday said that they were
unclear on the links of Malgonda Patil, main accused in Margao
blast, with Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur.

"The investigations are on. The accused may or may not
have links with Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur. We can`t disclose
anything at this time," Inspector General of Police K D Singh
told reporters here.

"Now it is not the time to say that there is link or no
link as the case is being investigated by National
Investigation agency (NIA)," Singh said.

He was reacting to reports in certain section of media
which claimed that Malgonda Patil, who died in the Margao
blast, had connections with Pragya Singh Thakur of Abhinav
Bharat Sanghatna, which is allegedly linked to Malegao blast.

"I did not confirm anything. I was misquoted," he said.
Singh, however, did not refuse that investigations were
probing the links between Margao and Malegao blasts, through

Goa Police`s special investigation Team (SIT) earlier had
confirmed Patil`s link with the accused in Thane and Panvel
blasts. Vikram Bhave, one of the accused in Panvel blast, was
reportedly in touch with Patil.

The investigations had also unearthed that Patil was
present in Sangli, Maharashtra, during the riots.
