“Yasin took Qateel to do a survey of the targeted area. The terror plot failed two days later as Qateel could not hand over the bomb to a flower seller, as planned, and later dumped the bomb in the sea,” said the source.
“When the duo met again a day later, near Jhansi, Yasin asked Qateel about the fiasco in Pune. When told that Qateel had dumped the defused bomb in the sea, perhaps off the Bandra-Worli Sealink Bridge, Yasin was furious,” said the source. Bhatkal had promised to give Rs. 50, 000 to Siddiqui for the planting of the bomb.
