Syed Bukhari held while attempting to enter PMs residence

Chief cleric of the Jama mosque Syed Ahmed Bukhari was detained here today when he tried to walk up to the residence of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to register protest against the police killings of people during demonstration against the Hyderabad bomb blast.

New Delhi, May 22 : Chief cleric of the Jama mosque Syed Ahmed Bukhari was detained here today when he tried to walk up to the residence of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to register protest against the police killings of people during demonstration against the Hyderabad bomb blast.

However, he was released after some time.

"We want to question the Prime Minister and the Government of Andhra Pradesh that when the blasts happened, people were killed, those Muslims who were praying were angry. So, it was natural for them to protest. But why were those innocent people shot by police? Is it justice?" Bukhari said in an interview after being released.

He further questioned the use of regular bullets instead of rubber ones to quell the rioting mob.

Five people were killed when police had to fire at a mob that attacked them, shops, vehicles, bank teller machines and petrol pumps in the aftermath of the Mecca blast in Hyderabad that claimed 14 lives and injured scores of other.

Police say high-voltage explosives made by combining TNT and RDX were used in the blast, which was triggered by a mobile phone.

Two similar but unexploded devices were discovered later as the SIM cards in the mobile phones kept with the explosives had expired. They were later defused.
