Malegaon, Sep 12: Police on Monday said the explosive devices used in Friday's attacks in Malegaon contained RDX and released the sketch of a man seen near a mosque where one of the blasts had occurred. 
A report from one of the three laboratories that tested samples from the blast sites stated that the bombs contained a mixture of RDX, ammonium nitrate and fuel oil, Nasik's superintendent of police Rajvardhan told reporters.

Rajvardhan released a sketch prepared on the basis of descriptions provided by eyewitnesses of a man who was seen outside the Hamidia mosque around the time of the explosions. This was the third sketch issued so far by police. On Sunday, the police released sketches of two men who bought bicycles believed to have been used to plant the bombs.

"Nobody has been arrested, nobody has been detained so far," Rajvardhan said. Police were still questioning "some people" and some witnesses, he said.

Investigators had gone to some places to follow up leads, he said. But he did not give details.
