Terrorists who targeted Jaipur followed a modus operandi similar to those who attacked this temple town in March and courts in three UP towns in November last year, indicating that the group behind the blasts is the same, intelligence officials said in Varanasi.

Top intelligence officials said that the attackers used cycle bombs in both Varanasi and Jaipur.

The Sankat mochan temple blast in Varanasi took place on a Tuesday evening, when the number of devotees is much higher than on other days and so was the case near a Hanuman temple in Jaipur.

The terrorists bought new cycles, planted explosives in them and placed them at the court complexes in Faizabad, Lucknow and Varanasi last November. Newly bought cycles were also suspected to have been used to set off the blasts in Jaipur.
