Delhi bombings probe leads team to KarnatakaSeptember 22nd, 2008 - 2:28 pm ICT by IANS
Bangalore, Sep 22 (IANS) A Delhi Police team Monday picked up a youth from the coastal city of Manipal in Karnataka for interrogation in connection with the Sep 13 serial bombings in the national capital, police sources said. The youth is said to be studying at the Sikkim campus of Manipal University which runs a string of educational institutions, mainly in Karnataka.
Delhi Police personnel assisted by their Karnataka counterparts are searching all the hotels and lodges in Manipal, some 400 km west of Bangalore, the sources said.
“We cannot reveal any more details now, as that will hamper investigation,” a senior police officer said on phone from Manipal in Udupi district.
University officials said they will comment only after verifying their records about students in their Sikkim campus.
Delhi Police say explosives used in the Sep 13 bombings came from Karnataka.
State Home Minister V.S. Acharya however maintained that the explosives were not manufactured in Karnataka but transported via the state.
