The police have launched a massive hunt for the woman. Vijay suffered minor shrapnel injures in the blasts yesterday. He told the police that Meena lives near one of the blast sites.

After initial investigations the police have claimed that terrorists had come from New Delhi, the national capital, in the guise of businessmen and stayed in different places.

Meanwhile, Manmohan singh khalsa (Dal Khalsa), has demanded investigation into the possibility of the involvement of Hindu extremist organizations in the blasts. "Bomb blasts in Jaipur give reasons to suspect the involvement of Hindu extremist organisations like RSS,Bajrang Dal and other Hindu outfits." He admonished the Congress-led central government as well as Rajasthan's BJP government and dubbed the blasts as a symbol of the failure of both governments.
