This is not the first time terrorists have used bus service to carry explosives. After the German Bakery blasts in February 2010,it had come to light during investations that explosives were brought by terrorists from Udgir to Pune by a State Transport bus. “Buses are convenient for transporting explosives since you get lost in the crowd and there is no police checking. Travelling by buses could be part of their strategy not to attract any attention…. Since using metal detector plan is not feasible here,” said activist Prashant Inamdar.
