Delhi Police suspects the involvement of a 'local hand' in the Jama Masjid blasts that injured around 15 people.

"Investigations suggest that some local links could be involved in the blast," said a senior police official investigating the case.

He added that telephone records pointing towards the involvement of local people had been found.

Two low intensity crude bombs had exploded at the Jama Masjid on April 14.

Officials have categorically denied the involvement of Lashker-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist Abdul Karim Tunda.

"Though the bombs were crude and similar to the ones used by Tunda to carry out attacks, our investigations suggest that he was not involved," said the police official.

Tunda is among the most wanted terrorists in India. State police and intelligence agencies believe that he carried out 37 blasts in the country between 1993 and 1997.
