Contending the video clips of bicycles in the e-mail in which a terror group claimed responsibility for Tuesday's serial bombings in Jaipur were "misleading", Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on Thursday said the explosives were arranged in such a way so as to ensure maximum loss of lives.

"After reviewing the details of the live bomb found after the serial blasts, it was seen the bomb bag was uniquely designed to fit two detonators and two batteries and aimed at causing maximum loss to human lives," she told reporters.

"Ball bearings like bullet pallets were mixed in the bombs," she said.

"The video details of the exploded cycle might be true and similar to the earlier blasts that took place in Malegaon or Uttar Pradesh," she said.

"In the e-mail footage, the bag is shown tagged on the back side of the cycle and its front is mingled. Whereas the cycle found by the police shows a reverse picture," she said.

"Our special investigating team supported by NSG and IB personnel are evolving their own theory. But we are not rejecting the e-mail theory," she clarified.
