Mumbai: The state anti-terrorism squad (ATS) has submitted a transfer warrant to a Delhi court to take the custody of four suspected Indian Mujahideen (IM) members arrested by the Delhi special cell in connection with the August 1 Pune blasts. The four are likely to be taken into custody by the Pune ATS on October 30.
    ATS chief Rakesh Maria said they have submitted a transfer warrant to a Delhi court. “We are likely to get their custody by October 30. Once we get their custody, we will question them thoroughly,” Maria said.
    Asad Khan, Imran Khan, Feroz and Irfan Landge were arrested recently for allegedly carrying out the August 1 Pune serial blasts and planning major strikes in Delhi this festive season. They are at present being interrogated at the Lodhi Colony office. Asad, Imran and Feroz are members of a module of LeT commander Fayyaz Kagzi. Landge was picked up and detained on October 5 by the special cell. “The ATS is on the lookout for two other suspects, one of them is from Aurangabad. Once they are caught, the police will have concrete evidence to prove its case,” said an officer.
    Two teams of the special cell are still camping in Delhi to pick up their suspects. Four bombs, planted on cycles, at various locations on Jungli Maharaj Lane in Pune went off. No one died in the blasts because of a technical hitch.
    The police said the bombing was to avenge the killing of IM member Qateel Siddiqui in Yervada jail.
