Maur blast: None arrested so far

Bathinda,  The police are working on various leads in their investigation into the Maur car blast. Besides collecting the CCTV footage and mobile tower locations, they have dispatched a team to Delhi to check registration numbers of a few vehicles that passed through Maur Mandi on January 31 when a blast during Congress candidate Harminder Jassi’s roadshow rocked the town.
While Jassi escaped with minor bruises, four children, a beggar and Congress office incharge lost their lives.
Besides rounding up two-three persons, the police are also keeping a close watch on the activities of more than 12 suspected elements. “We are yet to lay our hands on anything concrete,” said a senior police officer, pleading anonymity.
The police said over 24 vehicles passed through Maur Mandi that day. Separate teams have been sent to Delhi after examining the footage of CCTVs installed at the possible route of the culprits.
Bathinda SSP Swapan Sharma said though they managed to collect vital clues from the crime spot and through electronic surveillance, they were yet to arrest anyone in the case.
Meanwhile, the administration is awaiting funds to release the ex-gratia grant of Rs 5 lakh for the family of those who were killed in the blast and Rs 50,000 for the injured. The amount is likely to be received in a couple of days.
