Indore: After announcing a reward of Rs 10 lakh for information leading to the whereabouts of Ramchandra Kalsangra and Sandeep Dange in connection with 2007 Samjhauta Express blast, a team of National Investigation Agency is camping in western Madhya Pradesh.

Indore, Dewas and Shajapur in western Madhya Pradesh are on the radar of NIA, which announced a cash reward of Rs 10 lakh each for the information about Kalsangra and Dange earlier this week, highly placed sources in the police department said.

The team is camping in western Madhya Pradesh for the last two or three days, trying to collect information regarding the accused.

Kalsangra and Dange, who lived in Indore, are also wanted in Ajmer Dargah blast case. According to sources, some material used in the Samjhauta blast had been bought from Indore.

NIA intensified its efforts to nab the duo following Swami Aseemanand's statement to a magistrate that Kalsangra and Dange were involved in some of the blasts in the country. Aseemanand himself was arrested in connection with the Samjhauta blast.

The NIA, under the Union home ministry, is investigating the case relating to the bomb blast in Atari Express (popularly known as Samjhauta Express) in February 2007, which resulted in the death of 68 persons.
