Long before the discovery of the deendars, the
die was cast:
FIRST IT WAS THE CHRISTIANS
THEMSELVES, NOW IT'S THE ISI!
The blasts at a Christian religious congregation in Machlipatnam and a temple there on 24 May coupled with the recovery of a bomb and explosive material from two churches in Medak and St Judes Church at Viqarabad has left the police worried. An echo of these incidents was also heard at the Mahanadu when the Chief Minister and Telugu Desam president Chandrababu Naidu strongly condemned the incidents of the blasts. The State Government has handed over the investigations in the Machlipatnam and Vijaywada incidents to the Crime Branch, CID and same agency was likely to get the responsibility in the cases of the two churches. In case of Machlipatnam blast, the police had initially claimed that the incident could have been a fall out of the feud between the two groups of Christians in Jinjooru village which the Christian organizations disputed and blamed the Sangh Parivar for the incidents. The latest incidents have, however, made the police officials suspect the involvement of Pakistan's ISI.

Naidu suspects ISI hand behind 8 June blasts
Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has indicated that Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence could be behind the recent weeks' bomb blasts in the State. After visiting the Ongole Church on Thursday morning, Mr Naidu told mediapersons that ever since a suspected ISI agent Azam Ghouri was killed in an police encounter, the places of worship are being targeted in the State. "Investigations will be conducted from all the angles to bring culprits to justice,’ he said. Mr Naidu, who visited the attacked churches at Ongole and Tadepalligudem, announced a high level inquiry into the both incidents. He said apparently a well-organized group was behind these acts to create scare among the minorities. He referred to incidents at Machlipatnam and recovery of explosives from Churches at Medka and
Viqarabad. (The Pioneer, June 8, 2000)
