Police to release third sketch of bomber

"The sketch will be released tomorrow (Saturday)," said a police officer, adding that the earlier two sketches of men suspected to have placed the suitcase bomb at the Delhi High Court were based on descriptions of eyewitnesses.

After talking to several eyewitnesses and going through the statements and accounts of the injured, police are preparing a final sketch of the suspected bomber.

Police, acting on a theory that the attackers might have done a recce inside the court premises, are scanning a few of the close-circuit television (CCTV) cameras inside the high court building. However, they have not been able to find a face to match the sketches.

Stepping up security, the police have installed CCTV cameras at 34 markets in the city and at 10 entry points of the capital. The high court bombing on Wednesday left 13 dead and around 90 injured.
