The miscreants had a deadly recipe to unleash terror on Hyderabad. A combination of aluminium, ammonium nitrate and splinters were all put together to cause maximum damage in a crowded commercial cluster at Disukhnagar on the Vijayawada-Hyderabad highway.
According to sources, the forensic report on examination of the evidence gathered from the twin blast sites at Disukhnagar has indicated that the improvised explosive device (IED) had a coating of aluminium with ammonium nitrate stuffed in it. A copper wire was used to ignite the device through a timer. In order to maximise the impact of the blast, the terror groups had laced the explosive with splinters. Though there are reports that the splinters were in the form of nails, which would penetrate the bodies of the victims only to kill them, there is also a view that there were steel balls in the explosive.
Meanwhile, the investigators have stumbled upon a clue of sorts in the form of a person hailing from Kalapathar in old city of Hyderabad.
The person identified as Abdul Wahed was injured during the twin blasts at Dilsukhnagar and getting treated at a private hospital in Hyderabad.
He was also among the injured during the bomb blast at Mecca Masjid in 2007. Though for now the investigators would believe that the person getting injured in two bomb blasts as a mere coincidence, the “suspect” has been put through several rounds of questioning.
The sources have cautioned that it would be jumping the gun to suspect the person completely.
However, three teams of the police have carried out separate investigations on this person. Interestingly, it is said there is no similarity in the information that was gathered from the person, his family members and an independent survey of other acquaintances of the person.
The investigators turned suspicious with the person suffering injuries on his back while most of the victims have injuries on their faces or the frontal parts of the body.
