Video: Sonia visits blast site in Bodh Gaya

Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Indian Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde visited the Mahabodhi temple in Bodh Gaya today, the site of a series of bomb blasts on Sunday morning in which two Buddhist monks were injured, the NDTV reported.

The trail, however, has gone cold in the investigations. Four people, who were detained and questioned today by the National Investigation Agency for suspicious movement, have been released.

Calling the Bodh Gaya blasts "alarming", Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde yesterday said the government will investigate the incident from all possible angles and will not arrest anyone in hurry.

The Home Minister was accompanied by Sonia Gandhi and senior party leader Ambika Soni.
Religious places in India may now be protected by the paramilitary, Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde said today after visiting the Mahabodhi shrine in Bodh Gaya, the site of multiple blasts on Sunday. Mr Shinde, who visited Bodh Gaya along with Congress President Sonia Gandhi, said the Centre will consider CISF security for holy sites. The Nitish Kumar government in Bihar had been criticized for leaving the security of the Mahabodhi temple complex in the hands of private guards.
