The Home Ministry of the Maharashtra government seems to be taking the Delhi Police's claim of cracking the Pune blasts case with a pinch of salt. Home Minster R R Patil said on Thursday the state would not like to comment on the arrests till a final report is submitted by the Delhi Police.
"Until we get an official report from the Delhi police we cannot comment on the arrests," said Patil.
On October 11, the Delhi Police had claimed that it had arrested three members of the Indian Mujahideen and successfully cracked the August 1 Pune blasts case. "Until our police get custody of those arrested or an official report comes from the Delhi Police, we will not be in a position to comment," said Patil.
The Mumbai and Delhi Police seem to be involved in a running feud with each other over claims of cracking terror cases.
The Delhi Police had arrested Asad Khan, Imran Khan and Sayyed Feroz who they claimed were members of the IM and had carried out the blasts to avenge the killing of Qateel Siddiqui in Yerwada Jail.
The Maharashtra ATS had earlier claimed that they were close to cracking the case.
