Patna, Nov 1 (PTI): The prime suspect in the Patna serial blasts died in the Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences hospital here.
Ainul alias Tarique, who was on life support system, died late on Thursday night, hospital Director Arun Kumar Singh said.
”He had splinters-- suspected hard iron pieces-- in his brain and it was not possible to operate on him in that condition,” he said.
Ainul was caught while he was running away from a toilet at platform number 10 of Patna railway junction after the first bomb exploded there a few hours before the rally of Narendra Modi, prime ministerial candidate of the Bharatiya Janata Party, in Gandhi Maidan on October 27.
Some telephone numbers and documents were recovered from the suspect on the basis of which the entire planning by the terrorists was uncovered, police said.
Six people were killed in the serial blasts and more than 80 injured.
