Mumbai: It has been six years since July 11, 2006 when 187 people were killed and hundreds others injured as seven blasts ripped apart seven local trains in the country’s financial capital, Mumbai.

However, as victims wait for justice there is still not much known about who carried out the blasts.

The Maharashtra ATS and the Mumbai Crime Branch have different versions on the real culprits.

While the ATS claims SIMI activists (13 are in jail) carried out the bombings, the Crime Branch says the home-grown Indian Mujahideen (IM), now banned, was responsible.

Those arrested in the case are being tried under MCOCA. The court of special judge YD Shinde has examined 188 prosecution witnesses and is currently recording statement s of the accused.

Sources say the trial may end in three to four months.

During the evening peak hour on July 11, 2006, seven RDX-laden bombs had gone off in the first class compartments of seven trains near Matunga, Khar, Bandra, Borivli and Mahim stations within a span of 8 minutes.
