Mumbai: A Public Interest Litigation was
on Monday filed in the Bombay High Court demanding that probe into
the July 13 serial Mumbai blasts should be transferred to CBI.
At present, Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) and Mumbai Crime
Branch are jointly conducting the probe into bomb blasts which
left 19 persons dead besides injuring over 130. The explosions
occurred at Zaveri Bazaar, Dadar West and Opera House.
The PIL was filed by advocate VP Patil who contended
that the bomb blasts was terror attack on the nation and hence
the central agency like CBI must take up the probe.
It will come up for hearing in due course, Patil said.
Patil further prayed for action against Maharashtra
Government for failure of intelligence machinery about terror
attacks. He also pleaded that a committee may be formed to
improve police machinery in the state.
