Mumbai, July 13: The Home Ministry has confirmed that the serial blasts in Mumbai on Wednesday were a terrorist attack.
Mumbai Police sources say the Indian Mujahideen (IM) is suspected to be behind the attack. In Delhi, Home Ministry sources too say that the hand of the IM working closely with the Lashkar e Taiba is suspected.
Two members of the IM were arrested in Maharashtra yesterday by the Maharashtra Anti-Terror Squad. However, sources confirm there was no intelligence alert or input that warned of today’s terror attack.
The Home Ministry has said that Improvised Explosive Devices were used.
Home Minister P Chidambaram has called multiple high-level meetings. A National Investigation Team has rushed to Mumbai from Delhi to investigate. A National Security Guards (NSG) team and forensic experts have also been airlifted on a BSF plane and are bound for Mumbai.
