After announcing a reward for information about the whereabouts of Ramchandra Kalsangra and Sandeep Dange in connection with Samjhauta Express blast, a team of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) is camping in western Madhya Pradesh.

Indore, Dewas and Shajapur in western Madhya Pradesh are on the radar of the NIA, which announced a cash reward of Rs 10 lakh each, for information about Kalsangra and Dange earlier this week, highly placed sources in the police department said. The team is now trying to collect information regarding the accused.

Kalsangra and Dange, who lived in Indore, are also wanted in the Ajmer Dargah blast case.

According to sources, some material used in the Samjhauta blast had been bought from Indore. NIA intensified its efforts to nab the duo following Swami Aseemanand's statement to a magistrate that Kalsangra and Dange were involved in some of the blasts in the country.

Aseemanand himself was arrested in connection with the Samjhauta blast. Sixty eight people died in the Samjhauta Express blast in February 2007.
