West Bengal police claim leads in Hyderabad mosque blast

West Bengal police today claimed to have gathered clues in last weeks blast at Hyderabads Mecca mosque, which killed 14 people and injured scores of other.

Kolkata/New Delhi, May 22 : West Bengal police today claimed to have gathered clues in last week's blast at Hyderabad's Mecca mosque, which killed 14 people and injured scores of other.

Police said they found a mobile phone SIM card, whose owner's credentials were being checked.

"This (mobile SIM) card was deactivated in November 2006 because the credentials of whoever bought the card were not found to be proper. We also investigated the details and came to a conclusion that all the numbers; papers etc given in this regard were false. There is just one photograph which we are following up to see whether we get any further clues on it," said Bhupinder Singh, Additional Director General of Police, Crime Investigation Department, West Bengal police.

Police have been hunting for clues on who may be behind the bombing, which Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YSR Reddy called a "terrorist" attack.

Intelligence sources said a man was taken into custody in Kolkata, but Singh did not confirm this.

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.
