The Uttar Pradesh police on Monday ruled out a terrorist angle to the blast that took place at a hospital in Agra on Saturday. Special DGP (Law and Order) Brij Lal said neither the materials used nor the design of the device pointed to the involvement of terrorists.
As per preliminary investigation, the blast was caused by a crude device without a timer, or a detonator. The explosive materials were potassium chlorate, sulphur and charcoal, all of which are used in making firecrackers.
Brij Lal said the state's investigating agencies, including the ATS, were working to track down those involved in making and planting the bomb at Jai Hospital.
A joint team of ATS and Agra police is questioning a suspect who was picked up from Iglas area of Aligarh district on Sunday evening.
