Pakistani militant group claims Pune blast

An obscure militant group has claimed responsibility for last weekend's bomb blast in the western Indian city of Pune which killed 10 people.

A man saying he is a representative of a group known as Lashkar-e-Taiba Al Alami made the claim to The Hindu newspaper.

Calling himself Abu Jindal, he says the group is an offshoot of the Pakistani-based militant organisation and it carried out the strike because of India's refusal to discuss Kashmir in soon-to-be-held talks with Pakistan.

At this stage Indian officials are treating the claim with caution.

They say it could be an attempt to divert attention away from Lashka-e-Toiba, which is widely regarded to have the support of the Pakistani military.

The toll from the Pune blast has risen to 10 after the death of a 23-year-old man who was badly wounded on Saturday night.

Indian police have detained four people for questioning about the attack.

Pune blast rips apart a Lucknow home

Tremors of the Saturday night blast in Pune reached house number C-33 at H Road in Mahanagar area of Lucknow around break on Tuesday.

The jolt came in the form of a phone call from Pune informing about Abhishek Saxena's death. Pursuing his final year at DY Patil College of Engineering (DYPCE) in Pune, Abhishek was critically wounded in the February 13 blast at German Bakery in Pune.

He had been admitted to the Ruby Hall hospital with severe splinter injuries to the extent that one of his legs had to be amputated. But excessive bleeding from his wounds eventually took its toll on this only child of his parents around 3:30 am on Tuesday.

On the fateful Saturday evening, Abhishek had gone to the cafe for some snacks with his friends Rajeev Agarwal, Hrishab and Sumit Singh when the bomb ripped apart the place.

The blast left Abhishek with an amputated leg while his friend Rajeev had to undergo a surgery to remove his mutilated arm. Hrishab suffered multiple fractures while Sumit escaped with 40 per cent burns, said Manish, brother of Sumit, who was attending to them at the Ruby Hall hospital.
