Centre waiting for ATS report on Pune blast: Rajnath

The Centre is waiting for the report of the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) which is probing the blast in Pune, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said today.
‘The ATS is probing the case. Once their reports comes, we will be able to tell you in details,’ he told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.
Meanwhile, investigators probing yesterday’s blast in Pune has found that the bomb comprised about 200 grams of ammonium nitrate and some amount of Improvised
Explosive Device, Home Ministry sources said quoting a preliminary report sent by Maharashtra government.
Timer and detonator were used besides minimum amount of shrapnel which led the police to assume that idea of the explosion was not to kill people but create panic, they said.
Even though no group has so far claimed responsibility for the explosion, investigators are not ruling out the possibility of the involvement of banned terror group Indian Mujahideen, sources said.
