Panaji: Goa police on Monday said that they were unclear on the links of Malgonda Patil, main accused in Margao blast, with Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur.

"The investigations are on. The accused may or may not have links with Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur. We can't disclose anything at this time," Inspector General of Police K D Singh told reporters here.

"Now it is not the time to say that there is link or no link as the case is being investigated by National Investigation agency (NIA)," Singh said.

He was reacting to reports in certain section of media which claimed that Malgonda Patil, who died in the Margao blast, had connections with Pragya Singh Thakur of Abhinav Bharat Sanghatna, which is allegedly linked to Malegao blast.

"I did not confirm anything. I was misquoted," he said. Singh, however, did not refuse that investigations were probing the links between Margao and Malegao blasts, through Patil.

Goa Police's special investigation Team (SIT) earlier had confirmed Patil's link with the accused in Thane and Panvel blasts. Vikram Bhave, one of the accused in Panvel blast, was reportedly in touch with Patil.

The investigations had also unearthed that Patil was present in Sangli, Maharashtra, during the riots.
