India detains 350 people

Terrorism: Questioning to see any connection to the Bombay train bombings.

BOMBAY, India Jul 13, 2006 (AP)— Indian police have detained about 350 people for questioning in connection with the Bombay train bombings, officials said Thursday, amid suspicion that Kashmiri militants could be linked to the attacks that killed at least 200 people. Most of the detentions were made overnight in Malwani, a northeastern suburb of Bombay, said police Inspector S. Goshal. He said nobody has been formally arrested or charged, and the detainees were rounded up only for questioning to help with the investigations into Tuesday's bombings. Bombay police Commissioner A.N. Roy confirmed a large number of arrests had been made but refused to give an exact figure. "There have been widespread search operations. A lot of people have been detained for questioning," he told The Associated Press. "This is all part of a large scale investigation, the search operation and combing operation."
