An industrialist has been detained for questioning in Dhar district of Madhya Pradesh in connection with the Ajmer Dargah blast case by Rajasthan Anti-Terrorist Squad, police said on Sunday.

Rajesh Mishra, who is also an accused in the murder of Congress leader Pyar Singh Nenama and is currently out on bail, was detained by the ATS from Pithampur, 225 km from here, on Saturday night.

He is the fourth person in Madhya Pradesh to be picked by the ATS in connection with blast at the shrine of sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti in Ajmer in 2007 which left three persons dead and 30 injured, police said.

The Rajasthan ATS was keeping an eye on Mishra, who runs an engineering unit in Pithampur industrial area of neighbouring Dhar district, for the last seven months, police said.

Mishra was earlier questioned by a joint team of CBI and Rajasthan ATS in October 2009 in connection with the same blast case, but was let off after interrogation, they said.
Earlier, Lokesh Sharma (36), a resident of Indore, was picked up and detained by Rajasthan ATS on May 14.

Mishra and Sharma are also among the 13 accused in the murder of a Congress leader Nenama at Manpur locality of Indore district in August 2003, police said. Both were arrested in Nenama murder case and later released on bail.

The name of former RSS Parcharak Sunil Joshi, who was shot dead in Madhya Pradesh's Dewas district in December 2007, also figured in the investigation of Ajmer Dargah blast case.

Joshi was an accused in Nenama murder case too, police sources said. The other two persons earlier picked up by Rajasthan ATS were Chandrashekhar Barod and Vishnu Patidar from Shajapur district.

Patidar was let off but Barod has been arrested and is in the police custody till May 21, they said.
