NEW DELHI, May 21 (Xinhua) -- India's intelligence officers said on Wednesday that they have arrested four suspects in the serial blasts in the eastern city of Patna which took place during a mass rally of BJP prime minister nominee Narendra Modi last October.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) said the suspects belonged to the home grown terror group Indian Mujahideen and they were snatched from a village in the state of Jharkhand in central India.
The four arrested men have been identified as Haidar Ali alias "Black Beauty" who is the alleged mastermind, Mujibollah, Tafiq Ansari and Nauman Ansari.
The NIA had put a 500,000 rupee (8,000 U.S. dollars) prize on them after the blasts killed six and injured over 80 on October 27 in the Gandhi Mandan in central Patna, when Modi was holding a campaign rally in the capital of Bihar state in eastern India.
Indian officers focused on the Sithio village in the neighboring state of Jharkhand after several suspects were caught on the site of the blasts and confessed about the whereabouts of their accomplices, according to police.
However, the Jharkhand Police said they could not confirm about the arrests.
The Indian Mujahideen was accused of staging several bombing attacks across the country over the past several years, including an attack upon a Germany bakery in the western city of Pune in 2010 and another attack upon the Hindu holy city of Varanasi in the same year.
