Jama Masjid Shahi Imam demands CBI probe

New Delhi, Press Trust of India:
The Shahi Imam of Delhi’s Jama Masjid has demanded a CBI probe into the twin blasts in the historic mosque and at the Sankatmochan temple in Varanasi.

"Only a CBI probe into the blasts at Jama Masjid and Sankatmochan temple would bring to book those responsible for the heinous acts," Imam Syed Ahmed Bukhari said.

He said that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who visited the mosque on Saturday evening, had assured him of a CBI probe.

Bukhari said he made the demand as the investigation into the Varanasi blasts had not made satisfactory progress and a probe by the central agency would be better and faster.
