Jaipur blast video is no fake
The Mujahideen, in the email to the media, had said that the cycle with the frame number 129489 in the video clip was used in the Choti Choupad blast.The frame number was reported by TOI on Wednesday.
Speaking to reporters in Jaipur on Thursday, Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje acknowledged that the email with a video of some bicycles purportedly carrying bombs which were used in the serial blasts in Jaipur may have indeed been sent by those aligned with the gang which attacked the Pink City.
Meanwhile, police has found striking similarities between the improvised explosive devices used in the Jaipur serial blasts and the ones used in the twin blasts on August 25, 2007, in Hyderabad. Intelligence agencies said this indicated that terrorists who triggered the Jaipur and Hyderabad blasts learned their deadly tricks in the same camps in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) and Bangladesh and from the same trainers.
According to sources in the intelligence department RDX was not used in the Jaipur blasts contrary to initial reports.
Forensic tests revealed that only ammonium nitrate gel (also known as Neogel) was used in them. The same material was used for the twin blasts in Hyderabad. Neogel is freely available in local markets.
