Indore: CBI and Rajasthan Police on Monday questioned four persons here, including a local leader of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJUM), in connection with the Samjhauta Express blast, sources in the police said.

BJYM leader Praveen Mandal, who runs a cycle shop, was grilled in connection with the blast in the train at the local Palasiya police station for a long time, they said.

Earlier, during the initial investigation, the probe agency stumbled upon some clues which hinted that material used in the explosion might have been bought from Indore following which some people came under the scanner of the CBI, the sources said.

Sixty-eight persons were killed and many passengers sustained injuries when explosions ripped through Samjhauta Express on its way to Lahore from Delhi in Panipat in February 2007.
