MUMBAI: The Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS), which is probing the seven bomb blasts on suburban trains in Mumbai on July 11, on Monday confirmed the use of RDX, ammonium nitrate and oil fuel in the blasts that killed 183 persons and injured around 800,
ATS chief KP Raghuvanshi told reporters that the Hyderabad-based Forensic Laboratory had confirmed the use of RDX, ammonium nitrate and oil fuel in the traces of explosives collected from the seven first class compartments of suburban trains which were blasted.
"The traces of explosives collected were very small in quantity and that is why it took the forensic experts a lot of time to confirm which chemical ingredients were used," Mr Raghuvanshi told reporters. The ATS had also taken help of the National Security Guards in this regard, he said.
Meanwhile, state home minister RR Patil told the legislative assembly on Monday that the ATS probe was progressing at a satisfactory pace. The minister, however, said it won't be proper from the investigation point of view to reveal which terrorist outfit had masterminded the blasts.Mr Patil ruled out any lack of co-ordination between the ATS and the central intelligence agencies, as alleged by the opposition.
