Pune: The Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) will be questioning the Indian Mujahiddin terrorists in connection with Thursday`s Pune blast, as per reports on Sunday.
The list of IM terrorists, whom the ATS team will question, includes Yasin Bhatkal, Haider Ali and Asadullah Akhtar.
Bhatkal and Asadullah are presently in the custody after they were arrested from India-Nepal border for carrying out Pune German Bakery and Hyderabad Dilkushnagar blasts.
Yesterday, ATS had reportedly spotted a suspect in a CCTV footage recovered from the Pune blast site.
The footage showed the suspect parking a bike near Faraskhana police station`s parking lot before the blast occurred.
The ATS also monitored some emails which revealed that online messages were exchanged among Indian Mujahideen`s terrorists in Karachi before carrying out blasts, as per reports.
The blast caused by an IED planted in a motorcycle at Faraskhana police station`s parking lot had left five injured, including a police constable. The motorbike was stolen from a policeman posted in Satara some time back.
A case has been registered under Sections 307 (attempt to murder), 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means), 120 (B) (criminal conspiracy), besides various sections of the Explosives Act and Unlawful Activities Prevention Act.
