Bangalore, Pune blasts accused murdered in jail

German BakeryPune, June 8 (Agency)

Suspected Indian Mujahiddeen operative Qateel Mohammed Jaffer Siddiqui, named in the German Bakery blast here and the Bangalore terror attacks, was Friday found murdered inside his cell in Pune's Yerawada Central Jail, police said.

 

Siddiqui was found strangled with a thin rope inside his cell in the high-security jail, a police official told.

 

Preliminary investigation point to a gang war among members of rival mafia gangs in the prison which could have led to Siddiqui's killing.

 

Siddiqui had been caught by Delhi Police in November 2011.

 

He was arrested for involvement in the Chinnaswamy Stadium blast in Bangalore besides an aborted bid to blow up the Shrimant Dagdusheth Halwai Ganesh Temple in Pune last year.

 

Following the incident, security has been beefed up in several jails including Mumbai's Arthur Road Central Jail where Pakistani terrorist Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab is lodged.
