We are looking into all angles, say cops
ADMIN, 22-September-10 IST
According to eyewitnesses, two men on a motorcycle wearing raincoats fired indiscriminately at the bus.
The attack is seen as a revenge against the capital city's police force for having killed two terrorists allegedly belonging to the Indian Mujahideen group in an encounter on this day two years ago.
Atif Ameen and Mohammad Sajid were killed in Batla House area of Jamia Nagar in an encounter by a Special Cell team of the Delhi police. Inspector Mohan Chand Sharma of the special cell, who led the operation, had also been killed in the encounter.
Delhi Police Joint Commissioner Karnail Singh told media persons that the four cartridges recovered from the spot showed that the weapon used could be .38 calibre revolver.
But the rounds of fire recovered were also of 9 mm, which can be used in pistol or carbine, he said refusing to hazard a guess on the motive of the attackers. "We are looking into all angles and we cannot jump to conclusions," he said.
