Sanatan Sanstha members Googled bomb circuit diagrams
Panaji: Members of the Hindu rightwing group Sanatan Sanstha (SS), accused of carrying out the 2009 Diwali eve blast in Goa, `Googled` circuit diagrams from the Internet and later used them to build improvised explosive devices (IED), National Investigation Agency (NIA) officials said.
"In furtherance of the said conspiracy, accused Dhananjay Ashtekar downloaded circuit diagrams using the internet (Google search)," NIA officials said in their chargesheet which was submitted to a local court last week.
The chargesheet accuses 11 people (all members of the SS) of carrying out the 2009 October 16 blast, in which two SS members were killed when the detonator rigged gelatin sticks they were ferrying by scooter to Margao, 35 km here, accidentally exploded.
Ashtekar, who was studying in an engineering college in Maharashtra, was in charge of the technical aspects of the bomb-blast conspiracy and assembled the IEDs, one of which accidentally exploded, NIA officials said.
