The Government today said it has taken the near simultaneous explosions in Pune “very seriously” and investigators were looking for clues.

“We have taken it very seriously,” Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde told reporters here after a high-level meeting which reviewed the security situation in the country in the wake of last evening’s blasts in Pune.

Shinde said a team of National Investigation and experts of National Security Guards were already in Pune and they have joined the investigation with Maharashtra Police.

“The report of the investigation has not yet come,” he said, adding that one injured person had been admitted to hospital.

Asked how he would like to describe yesterday’s four explosions in his home state, the Minister said: “I cannot say what sort of attack it was.’’

Shinde also said he has no immediate plan to visit Pune.

Yesterday’s blasts took place hours after Shinde assumed charge of the key Home Ministry.

People of india are tired of listening /hearing that govt is serious aboutterrorism. Honourable Minister is requested to notice CCTVs were non functional. How many times govt shall utter same words when we have failed in combating terrorism' Expenses on installation of CCTVS is purely waste of public money.
