The two suspects, arrested in connection with the twin blasts in Varanasi, on Saturdaty underwent an identification parade at a hotel in the temple town, STF sources said in Varanasi.
Sadiq Ali and Ansar, whose faces resembled the sketches released by police on Thursday, were arrested along with six others from a marketplace in Hardoi on Friday evening.
Police officials, however, were tight lipped about the outcome of the identification parade and remained inaccessible to the media.
A large number of media-persons gathered outside the hotel where the identification parade took place.
Shopkeepers of Godaulia market where the suspects had allegedly kept a bag containing the pressure cooker bomb were called to the hotel to identify the two.
Police had prepared the sketches on the basis of information provided by the shopkeepers who had watched the movement of suspects.
Hardoi police station in-charge VK Mishra said that the two had booked rooms in the rest house where they had checked in on Thursday in the name of Javed, a resident of Dulaipur in Jaunpur district.
