The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Tuesday released the first sketches of a suspect nine days after the serial bomb explosions at the Mahabodhi Temple in Bodh Gaya.

CCTV footage, on the basis of which the sketch was done, showed the suspect moving at a blast site. Witnesses said they detected suspicious movements of a person wearing a monk's robe and a mask.

The police have also recovered a bag containing a dress worn by monks and the identity card of a person who said he had lost it a few days before the blasts. "NIA solicits the co-operation and assistance of the general public," the NIA notice read.
