Bodh Gaya serial blasts : Bihar Govt ignored IB warning


A team of Delhi Police is likely to visit Bihar's Bodh Gaya town to share information provided by the Indian Mujahideen (IM) terrorists who had earlier planned an attack on the temple, police said on Sunday.


The question arises  when the Intelligence Bureau  had already issued alert regarding threat to Mahabodhi Temple in Bodhgaya than  why the Bihar government did not paid heed to it .

This is the first terror attack in Bihar  and how is it possible that a terrorist  became successful in planting a bomb inside the temple premises when according to the Bihar government  security was  hightened  after the intelligence warning .

After nine blasts rocked the Mahabodhi temple complex at Bodhgaya, Intelligence agencies  are conducting raids  in various hotels  in Nawada,jamui, Shekhupura ,Aurangbad ,jehanabad  ie in  and around Gaya.


Intelligence reports suggested that two terrorists had sneaked into Bihar last month and central forces  were deployed for security .

As Indian Mujahideen module busted by the  Delhi special team in August 2012  had  planned to attack the Bodhgaya Temple in Bihar. and Delhi police informed Bihar Police and asked them to step up security in the temple premises.Riyaz Bhatkal located in Karachi in Pakistan  consulted  the terror attack  with Yasin Bhatkal, The reason cited by the Bhatkal was that Bodhgaya  terror attack is to take revenge of the atrocities being conducted on minorities in Myanmar.

German bakery blast accused had confessed during interrogation that a recce was done in Bodhgaya, said BJP spokerman Ravi Shankar prasad.

Bihar Chief minister Nitish Kumar  has arrivd in Bodhgaya .


But Preliminary investigations shows that the motive was more to scare than cause destruction as the timing of the blasts  was so selected when thre are less number of people  in the temple .

Security alert sounded at Indo-Nepal border

An alert was today sounded on the Indo-Nepal border after nine serial explosions rocked the internationally renowned temple town of Bodh Gaya in Bihar.

District Magistrate K V Pandiyan said police and SSB have been alerted after the terror attack and they have been asked to maintain a vigil on the border.

He said security has been increased in famous Devipatan and other temples.Nine serial blasts took place inside and outside the
Mahabodhi Temple in Bodh Gaya early this morning in which two monks were injured.

Similar threats were issued in 2012

In 2012  similar threat was issued and CCTV cameras in and around the temple were installed  but how is it possible that  bombs were planted   inside  and outside the temple premises .

Police sources  claimed  that the state government and district authorities had beefed up security measures following the warning.
If CCTV cameras are installed  than national investigative agency NIA   will be able to get enough evidence .

The Mahabodhi Temple is one of the 84,000 shrines erected by King Asoka the Great in the 3rd century B.C.

A control room  should be  set up at the Bodh Gaya police station located adjacent to the Mahabodhi temple to monitor activities and movement of people under the coverage area.

The National Investigation Agency  is investigating the  blst site

While four serial blasts took place inside the Mahabodhi Temple complex at about 5:40 am, three blast took place at the Terega Monastery. The eight blast took place near the famous 80-foot statue of Lord Buddha.

DIG Nayyar Husnain Khan said, "The sanctum sanctorum of the Mahabodhi Temple is intact. The identity of the injured monks is yet to be ascertained.

India continues to be one of the most persistently targeted countries by transnational terrorist groups like Lashkar e Taiba  and other terrorists groups.


BJP attacks Bihar Govt

The Bharatiya Janata Party attacked the government over the security lapse in Bodhgaya in the backdrop of the bomb blasts at the Mahabodhi Temple in which five people are injured.

"If this is a result of issue in Myanmar, it is a new front of terrorism," BJP spokesperson Prakash Javedkar said.


The BJP also appealed the Central as well as the state government to investigate the matter seriously. "This is extremely unfortunate, we condemn it. We appeal the Central and Bihar government to investigate this matter seriously," he said.
