Mumbai: Maharashtra Leader of Opposition in
Legislative Council Pandurang Phundkar on Wednesday blamed Pune
police commissioner for neglecting threat alerts from the
central agencies to vital installations in the city.

"Pune Police Commissioner Satyapal Singh was busy with
his office security when the blast took place," Phundkar said
in a discussion on law and order situation of the state.

"In fact the Central agencies had informed the state
Government about the possible threats to Chabad House, Lal
Deul and Osho Ashram," he said.

Instead of providing security to these establishments,
the Commissioner beefed up the security around his office,
Phundkar said.

The blast could have been avoided if the alerts were
followed by him, he added.
