Chandigarh, Sep 17 (IANS) Scientists at the Central Forensic Sciences Laboratory (CFSL) here Wednesday indicated that preliminary investigation of material samples collected from the sites of the Delhi blasts had showed fingerprints collected from at least two places were the same.”The fingerprints on material collected from two blast sites, Gaffar Market and Central Park, were identical. We are doing more tests and matching samples from other sites as well. This could mean that either the same person made the bombs or these were planted by the same person. Further investigations are being made,” a scientist at CFSL told IANS.

CFSL director R.K. Verma told mediapersons that samples had been brought by scientists from the blast sites in Delhi and the same were being examined.

“We have brought the samples and are examining them. We will submit our report shortly,” Verma said.

CFSL experts have been collecting samples at all five blast sites in Delhi since Sunday. The examination of the samples started here Tuesday.

The experts brought one of the defused bombs, samples of the dustbins in which other bombs were planted and also other samples from the explosion spots.

The CFSL will also find out the ingredients used in the bombs.

At least 24 people were killed and scores injured as five serial blasts rocked Delhi Saturday evening.
