The Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad and city Crime Branch probing the Mumbai serial blasts said on Friday it has reconstructed the sequence of events at two of the three sites before the blasts with the help of CCTV footages.
“The sequence of events that led to the blasts at Zaveri Bazaar and Opera House on July 13 has been reconstructed with the help of CCTV footages. We now have got the actual idea as to what had happened on that fateful day,” said an IPS officer probing the blasts case.
The blast incident was not captured on the CCTV at Dadar, the official said, adding, “The investigators have possession of CCTV visuals of seven days prior to the blasts at the Opera house.”
When asked how many people were involved in placing the explosives before blasts, the official said, “at least six persons may have been involved in placing the explosives at three locations. But the actual number could be known only after the accused’s arrest.”
Asked about the reports of getting “good leads” from Pune and Parbhani cities of the state, “We have been questioning several people for the leads from within and outside the state. We do have good leads in the case.”
The ATS had taken the help of technical experts, who have worked on Hollywood movies, to get the clear picture of the grainy images in the CCTV footages and the agency got “excellent results” of the footages, the official said. Hindu
