Indian Mujahideen first suspect in Pune blast

Highly placed sources in intelligence agencies tell CNN-IBN the Indian Mujahideen, the group blamed for a string of bomb blasts in major cities in 2008, is their first suspect for the Pune blast on Saturday.

Evidence collected from the blast in Pune has the “ trademark ” of the Indian Mujahideen, sources say. The group has built a strong network suspect across Maharashtra and is believed to have a module in Pune, they say.

The group is blamed for the serial blasts in Varanasi, Faizabad and Lucknow on November on November 23, 2007 that killed 13 people.

It is also blamed for the May 2008 serial bombing in Jaipur that killed 63 people.

The July 26, 2008 in Ahmedabad that killed 46 people was also the handiwork of the Indian Mujahideen.
