Ahmedabad: A team of the National
Investigation Agency arrived in Modasa town of Sabarkantha
district to investigate into the 2008 blast that killed one
person and injured 10 others, police said today.

"The NIA team came to Modasa yesterday and started
investigating into the Modasa blast case of 2008," Sabarkantha
Superintendent of Police R B Bhrambhatt told PTI.

"They are doing preliminary investigation into the case,"
he said, adding that the NIA team has not contacted them yet.

After the NIA found links between Modasa blast and some
of the cases it was investigating, the Union government
had ordered that case be handed over to the probe agency.

In the evening of September 29, 2008, a low intensity
blast in the Suka Bazar area had killed a 15-year-old boy and
injured 10 people.

During investigation it was found that gun powder was
used to trigger the explosion in a minority dominated area
a few days before Eid.

According to police, the explosives attached with a
timer device were mounted on a motorcycle in the densely
populated area and was triggered using the battery of the
two-wheeler. No arrests have been made in the case so far.
