A 25-year-old Kashmiri, who allegedly played mischief with the police by claiming to be a terrorist associated with Hizbul Mujahideen and executed the recent Pune blast, has been arrested for public mischief and criminal intimidation, the police said here on Saturday. Bashir Googlu, who claimed that he and his three associates were part of the group that triggered the July 10 Pune blast, was arrested yesterday, police said.
A journalist on Monday moved the Bombay High Court seeking reinvestigation of the 2010 Pune German Bakery bomb blast case by an independent agency and also sought to intervene in the death confirmation petition of the lone convict Himayat Baig.
Delhi Police claimed to have solved the Pune serial blasts in August and averted terror strikes in Delhi and Bihar during upcoming festival season with the arrest of three suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorists.
As the investigation into Wednesday’s Pune blasts continues, forensic experts have said that forty-eight hours of rainfall could have degraded the explosive material used in the series of blasts that shook the city.
