Ahmedabad: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday slammed the Central Government for failing to prevent Wednesday's serial bomb blasts in Pune and said that there should be zero-tolerance towards terror.
"This is not an issue of how much or how little damage was done. The terrorists are sending us a message that they have the power to spread fear. I hope the government responds appropriately with a zero tolerance policy towards such activities," said Modi in Ahmedabad.
Meanwhile, an FIR has been filed under the Explosives Act and Unlawful Activities Prevention Act against unknown people in the Wednesday Pune serial blasts case.
Union Home Secretary RK Singh has confirmed that two Improvised Explosive Devices that didn't explode are being examined. The National Security Guards (NSG) and National Investigation Agency (NIA) are also examining CCTV footage to find out about the people who may have planted the bombs.
Initial investigations have revealed that ball bearings, an odourless powder, a sticky substance, detonators and circuit were used in the blasts. The cycles used to plant the bombs were newly purchased.
Meanwhile, Dayanand Patil who is suspected to have carried one of the explosive devices claimed that he picked up a bag carrying the explosives from close to the protest venue of India Against Corruption.
