The entire matter is being investigated seriously. Rule of law prevails in Madhya Pradesh, an land of peace and no one involved in suspicious activities will be spared."
"Memon has been trained in the making IEDs, explosives and handling of weapons in China and Pakistan" as per the official communication sent by NIA to security agencies.
