One more arrested in Pune blasts case

Mumbai, Jan 14, 2013 , DHNS

The Maharashtra Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) on Monday arrested one more terror suspect Bunty Jahgirdar on charges of aiding and abetting the 2012 Pune serial blasts, under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA.)

Jahgirdar was produced before a special court dealing with organised crime and has been remanded in police custody till January 24. ATS officials at the court stated that Jahgirdar, a history-sheeter, had supplied two pistols to four persons arrested by the Delhi Police from various places in connection with 2012 Pune blasts.

Jahgirdar, son of NCP party worker in Ahmednagar, was earlier arrested by ATS in 2006 for helping and abetting a Pakistani spy reportedly operating in interiors of Maharashtra. Last year on August 1, eight low-intensity blasts had rocked one of the busiest streets of Pune’s Junglee Maharaj Road where one person had sustained minor injuries.

Soon after the blasts, the Delhi Police arrested four suspects, and Maharashtra ATS arrested three people, who claimed belonged to banned outfit Indian Mujahideen. The investigators had claimed that explosions were carried out in order to avenge the murder of one Qatil Siddiqui.
