MADURAI:  Though the Madurai police were able to detect three bombs before they could explode, on different occasions here, they are still clueless about the identity of the culprits behind these blast attempts.

Explosives were planted in Madurai on six occasions, since 2010.  

In the Advani pipe bomb case, the police managed to arrest some of the accused a few months ago . However, they are yet to nab extremist S Fakrudeen alias ‘Police’ Fakrudeen, who is believed to be the brain behind the plot. In the other four cases, (excluding Tuesday’s blast) handled by the local police, not a single arrest had been made so far, a police source said.

However, all these cases clearly indicated that explosive materials are freely available in Madurai and that the police had not succeeded in streamlining the sale of explosives to stone quarries, police sources claimed. While the local police suspect the involvement of Islamic fundamentalists in these incidents, no progress has been made in any of the cases, said a source from the Intelligence unit.
