The lone injured person in the August 1 serial bomb explosions here -- Dayanand Patil-- discharged after treatment, is now being questioned further by the ATS officials, who have taken over the probe from the city crime branch, police sources said today.

Police have already stated that Patil, in whose carry bag, one of the explosives went off near the Balghandharva theatre, was not under detention or arrest and was under routine interrogation only to know the details of the events, leading to the blasts.

No headway has so far been made in the investigations in a week after the explosions occurred.

A tailor by profession, Patil, who used to commute daily from the nearby Uruli Kanchan village to Pune to work in a shop, was treated for minor injuries and a spinal cord problem in the Sassoon hospital here, from where he was officially discharged on Monday night, hospital authorities said.

Patil , however, was being taken to his native place Bidar in Karnataka by the ATS officials as part of the ongoing investigations into the minor blasts, sources said.

Meanwhile, still smarting under the impact of the blasts, in which, the terrorism angle has not been ruled out, police have appealed to people not to congregate in large numbers on streets for the 'Dahi Handi' festival to celebrate Janmasthtami festival tomorrow.
