CBI to probe common links in Malegaon, Mecca and Ajmer blasts

After confession of Swami Aseemanand CBI re-investigating the 2006 Malegaon blast has found one common factor from forensic evidence. In Malegaon, Mecca and Ajmer blast, the bombs used were made of cast iron pipe shells. According to forensic experts cast iron is only used in India by the army. It has also been found by the forensic experts that metallic striations used inside these pipe match with the one used by the army. Also the white RDX used in 2006 Malegaon blast resembles with other blasts carried out by Hindu extremist groups elsewhere. The execution of Malegaon blast and the planting of bombs were on the lines used in military circles called bunker demolition technique. In this technique the bomb is kept in such a way that the explosion causes maximum damage.
