Mumbai blasts: One detained from AP
Mumbai: Maharashtra Anti Terrorism Squad on Thursday reportedly detained one person from Karimnagar district of Andhra Pradesh, claiming an important breakthrough in July 13 serial blasts in Mumbai.
Reports suggest that the man, Ishaq, is a key conspirator in the blasts.
Meanwhile, Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan visited the Mumbai Police Commissioner`s office and assured all assistance to upgrade and modernise the control room.
Chavan was accompanied by Home Minister RR Patil and Minister of state for home, Satej Patil.
He said steps will be taken to modernise the police control room with state-of-the-art equipment for facing the new security challenges.
Chavan was shown a demonstration of how control room tracks the beat patrol vehicles moving around the city through the GPS tracking system. He was also shown how traffic is monitored through CCTVs.
He sought to know how telephone calls on "100" are recorded and how calls are made on wireless.
Chavan spent more than 30 minutes at the control room and interacted with the police officials manning it.
The Chief Minister asked the police commissioner Arup Patnaik to prepare a proposal on the requirements for up-gradation. "The proposal will be cleared at the Mantralaya level expeditiously," he said.
