In a horrifying disclosure that will surely give you the goose bumps, one of the accused in the Ahmedabad serial blasts case of July 2008, Mujib Shaikh, has confessed of planting a bomb near a tution class so as to kill kids and add as many figures to the casualty list. Mujib confessed before police that he had chosen Maninagar crossroads as one of the spots to plant a bomb to target children who come for their tuitions daily at a complex located there.
Shaikh, a resident of Juhapura area, is one of the main accused in the serial blasts case. He was in custody of Madhya Pradesh police, but Ahmedabad DCB won his custody after getting a transfer warrant from the court recently.
Shaikh was the one who had purchased inventory used in making the operation successful. He was also the brain behind selecting locations for planting the bombs.
Shaikh had personally visited the two spots chosen near Maninagar crossroads and had also assisted Shakeel Nishar to plant the bomb at one place and Zeeshan Ahmed at the other.
According to police, Shaikh had selected both the spots as they were also in close proximity of stalls vending paan-gutkha and tea, thus increasing their potential to inflict as many casualties as possible. According to police, Shaikh has told them that after having planted the bombs he reached Kalupur Railway Station to catch a train for Delhi.
