A team of Aurangabad anti-terrorism squad has left for Hyderabad today to assist the investigating agencies in the Dilsukhnagar serial blasts, which claimed 16 lives and injured over 120 people on Thursday evening.
According to sources, the team comprises two senior officers and equal number of constabulary staffers. The Aurangabad team has been roped in by the investigating agencies to learn details of some suspected terrorists arrested by city ATS last year and their modus operandi. City ATS has arrested nearly 15 youths, allegedly involved in the conspiracy of German Bakery blasts and low intensity blasts in August 2012.
Apart from Aurangabad, teams of Mumbai and Pune ATS have also been summoned and they will share the modus operandi of the suspected terrorists arrested by them. However, the names and designations of Aurangabad ATS officials that have gone to Hyderabad couldn't be learnt. Superintendent of police (SP) of Aurangabad, Naveenchandra Reddy, expressed his inability to react over the development when contacted for the official version on phone.
