Kashmir Factor In Pune Attack?17 February 2010
Mumbai: There may be a Kashmir connection to Saturday evening’s bomb blast at the German Bakery in Pune, police sources said on Wednesday. Data collected by intelligence agencies from mobile phone companies indicate that a large number of phone calls were made to Pakistan occupied Kashmir shortly before and after the blast. A woman software engineer is already being questioned in the connection, police sources had said earlier. She had made several calls to PoK from Pune before the blasts and some from the interiors of Pune district after the incident, the police said. On Wednesday, the police said four Kashmiri handicraft dealers were picked up from Hampi in Karnataka. Though Pune Police Commissioner Satyapal Singh refused to confirm the incident, sources said teams of investigators picked up the four from Pune some time on Tuesday. The police are on the lookout for more persons, sources said.
