New Delhi: Amidst reports of interrogation of
a Maharashtra Congress leader`s aide in the Pune blast, BJP
on Saturday said the probe should be fair as the terrorist act was
part of a larger conspiracy to dissuade foreigners from
visiting India.
"There are reports that Arif Pathan, an aide of
Maharashtra Congress spokesperson, has been questioned by the
police in the German Bakery case. We expect investigations
will be fair and serious," BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar
Prasad said.

Pathan, 54, was reportedly questioned on Wednesday by
Maharashtra police in connection with the blast on February
25.
Prasad said the Pune blast was not only a terrorist act
but also a conspiracy to "dissuade foreign tourists from
coming to India".

The German Bakery is located near the Osho Ashram and a
Chabad House and was frequented by several foreigners.
