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
