Premature to name militant outfit behind Mumbai blasts: UK Bansal

New Delhi, July 14 (ANI): A day after serial blasts rocked the financial of the country, UK Bansal, Secretary (Internal Security) in the Home Ministry, on Thursday said it is premature to name any militant outfit behind the Mumbai blasts.

"It cannot be decisively said with confidence that which militant group is behind this incident and that is the reason why we are inquiring about all the militants groups and we are discussing about it, suspecting all the groups," he told media persons here.

Bansal said that no specific leads as of now have been identified, but all militant groups are under suspicion.

He further said that the forensic science evidence would help in the investigations.

"We are not doing blind investigation, the Mumbai Police have got the evidence of forensic science and on the basis of that all the speculations and conclusion will take place. Moreover, deep investigations are still going on against the groups, which had earlier come into the limelight, for being involved in incidents similar to this," said Bansal.

"And I am sure that soon we will get some information about the incident, which would contribute in the investigation procedure," he added.

At least 18 people were killed over 130 others were injured in the three blasts that took place in Mumbai on Wednesday evening.

The three serial blasts rocked Zaveri Bazaar, a popular jewellery market, the busy business area around Opera House and the crowded Dadar area of Central Mumbai between 6.45 p.m. and 7.04 p.m. (ANI)
