Jammu, Nov 18: While police have rounded up over a dozen suspects from various parts of Jammu city in the past 24 hours, it is clueless on the Saturday’s grenade blast in the winter capital which led to killing of one person besides injuring six others.
Official sources said around six persons were rounded up by police from Narwal and its adjoining areas immediately after the blast. They included a surrendered militant whose identity could not be ascertained immediately. Similarly, more than six persons were also reportedly picked up by police for questioning from some other parts of the city. “Though most of them were let off after questioning some of them remained in police custody,” sources said.
They said that all the intelligence and law enforcing agencies were activated immediately after the blast but till today there was no clue about the person or persons who lobbed the grenade towards the liquor shop. “The intelligence agencies have also come under criticism from the top brass for its failure to understand the gravity of the situation, especially after the shootout outside the two liquor shops in Srinagar,” they said.
A senior police officer said that though security was already on high vigil in the winter capital after Durbar move, nobody was expecting a militant attack especially in view of the fact that militancy was almost negligible in almost entire Jammu region.
