While five blasts were triggered within the rally venue, two exploded outside in which eight people, including a militant of Indian Mujahideen, were killed and over dozens injured.
The NIA, which was handed over the case, has been carrying out investigations into the case and with the help Intelligence Bureau, it had nabbed Yasin Bhatkal who had named the main culprits behind the incident.
Due to lack of support either from Bihar or neighbouring Uttra Pradesh Police, the NIA has been carrying out investigations with the help of central agencies and has been able to crack the case.
The NIA arrested four people, including Mohammed Imtiyaz Ansari who was apprehended by the public when he, along with another IM accused, was assembling bombs inside a toilet at a makeshift railway station in Patna.
