New Delhi: Union Home Secretary RK Singh on Thursday ruled out any link between the Delhi High Court blast and a Hyundai i10 car recovered from Faridabad this morning.

Earlier, reports said the terrorists flew from the bomb site after planting the briefcase bomb at the Delhi court in the i10 car.

Earlier in the day, sources said investigators would zero in on a Patna-based man and have launched a hunt to nab the owner of a car. "The car`s owner has cheated a few people and they have told the investigators that the face of the car owner resembles the sketch of a suspect released last evening," official sources said today.

"Another man from Patna who was arrested on charges of using a stolen ATM card is being interrogated by the joint team led by NIA," they said.

Twelve people have died and 75 injured in the powerful blast that took place outside gate number 5 of the court yesterday.

Meanwhile, Delhi Police and National Investigation Agency (NIA) teams met Delhi High Court Chief Justice Dipak Misra and discussed with him measures to beef up security in and around court premises and installation of CCTV cameras, metal-detectors and other security gadgets.

The sources said the government has also decided to hand over to NIA the case relating to the May 25 low-intensity blast outside the Delhi High Court.
