New Delhi: The high-intensity blast (IED) outside the Delhi High Court on Wednesday has once again exposed the failure of our intelligence agencies and serious lapses in country’s security apparatus.

Sources have told Zee News that today’s IED blast could be a handiwork of terrorist organizations like the Indian Mujahideen (IM), which is already under scanner for terror activities.

Although, it is yet to be confirmed which terrorist outfit is behind the blast, the forensic evidence collected from the blast site suggests the use of ammonium nitrate with shrapnel, which is commonly used in the blasts triggered by the IM.

Today’s blast bears a similarity with the May 25 blast at the same location. That blast was low intensity as against today’s high-intensity blast.

Investigations into the May blast have been inconclusive so far. The police had at that point said that it was the job of those who sympathized with the militants killed in the Batla House encounter.

The IB too says there has been a peculiar pattern in which blasts have been taking place and there are several sleeper cells capable of carrying out such attacks.
