SIMI, Indian Mujahideen Own up to Pune Blast: Police

Pune, Feb 24 (IANS) The outlawed Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) and the Indian Mujahideen have claimed responsibility for the terror blast at Pune's German Bakery Feb 13 that killed 16 people, Police Commissioner Satyapal Singh said here Wednesday.

Singh told mediapersons that he has received two letters to this effect, purportedly from the two organisations but did not elaborate.

On the evening of Feb 13, a blast ripped through the German Bakery in the upscale Koregaon Park area, killing 16 people and injuring scores. The bakery was frequented by foreigners and students and was located near the Osho Ashram and a Jewish prayer house.

In a related development, a designated anti-terrorism court here passed an order restraining the electronic media from telecasting footage of the blast site.

A police prosecutor urged that the telecast of the site footage was hampering investigations.
