Nanded blast: CBI questions Col Purohit

delhi Updated: May 03, 2009 23:27 IST

After reopening the probe into the Nanded blast of 2006, the CBI has recently taken custody of army’s tainted Lieutenant-Colonel, Srikant Purohit, and questioned him at length about his role in the incident.

The CBI officially remained tight-lipped about the development, but sources in the investigating agency said the remand of Purohit has been taken from a designated court and he has been questioned about the Nanded blast.

The Malegaon blast chargesheet, which has named Purohit among 14 others as an accused, had raised serious questions on the nature of the CBI probe into the Nanded explosions which may have ignored early signs of self-styled right wing groups getting armed. Purohit was examined by detectives of the Special Crime unit of the CBI to ascertain whether he was instrumental in providing training to cadre of Abhinav Bharat, official sources said here on Sunday.
