NIA releases two in Gaya temple blasts case

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has released two local men for want of evidence in the serial bomb blasts at Bodh Gaya temple on Sunday.

Binod Mistri and Dashrath Yadav were released last night for want of evidence after recording their statements, police said today.

Mistri was detained in the evening of Sunday by the security forces on the basis of his voter identity card found inside the temple during search after the explosions. Dasrath was held for questioning on the basis of call details of Mistri's mobile made to him.
Both hail from Barachatti village of Gaya.

With the two, all six detained persons were set free.

Patna police yesterday released four youngsters who had booked two rooms in a hotel near the temple for merely two hours on Sunday morning.

NIA, which has been formally entrusted with the job of probe into the terror attack, is now sifting through the data of calls, incoming as well outside from the temple town.
Some clues had been found during the exercise and a few persons might be called for questioning soon, police said.
