Investigation intoSaturday's bomb blastsin the national capitalwas proceeding in the "correct direction" and "lots of information" about those behind the attacks have been gathered, Home Minister Shivraj Patil said on Sunday.
Emerging from an hour-long Cabinet meeting presided over by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, he told reporters, "We have lots of information with us," when asked whether any Kashmiriterrorist group has taken responsibility for the explosions that officially left 59 dead.
"Please do not pressurise us to disclose that information. Once that kind of information is disclosed, its effectiveness gets reduced. After the results are achieved, we will explain it to you," Patil said.
"We will not comment. You will not compel us to disclose. Our assessment is our people in the investigation are proceeding in the correct direction. They are doing well in the investigation," he said when pressed further on the involvement of the groups in the blasts.
"We have enough information. But it is not proper, scientific or correct to disclose at this point of time," Patil said.
A little known outfit Inquilab Group has claimed responsibility for the Delhi blasts.
