Additional Director General of Police (Internal Security) Amarkumar Pandey will supervise the investigation into the case of explosives planted on the railway track, said Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) M N Reddy on Sunday.
Reddy told Express that prima facie it is evident that it was a sabotage. “We have to find out the groups behind the act and their motive. As the miscreants were speaking in Telugu as well as in Marathi, we cannot rule out the involvement of Naxalites. We will investigate the matter from all angles,” Reddy said. The Internal Security Wing team will enlist the help of the Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra police, Railway Protection Force and local police. The Andhra Pradesh team has already arrived and started its investigation,” he said.
The ADGP said Tulajaram had noticed the miscreants had more explosives in a bag. Though the same gang had kept explosives on a railway track at Malakhed, the explosives were not connected to a battery as in this case, he said. The ADGP expressed confidence that the team would nab the accused at the earliest. Tulajaram has clearly seen the faces of all the four accused and their sketches would be prepared soon, Reddy said.
