LUCKNOW: Striking similarities between the low intensity blasts in Pune on Wednesday and in Gorakhpur five years ago have left the UP police baffled. Just as with the police in Pune, Gorakhpur police, too, had initially dismissed the three blasts on May 22, 2007, as an attempt by local goons to spread mischief. However, a few arrests which were made later established the Indian Mujahideen’s hands behind the blast. Besides, at both Pune and Gorakhpur, new bicycles were used to plant the bombs.

On May 22, 2007, around seven pm, three blasts took place within a span of 20 minutes on a 500-metre stretch at the busy Golghar market area of Gorakhpur, injuring four people. The first blast took place at Jalkal building, the second at Baldeo Plaza, and the third at Ganesh Chauraha.
