Hindutva militant carrying bomb killed in Goa
Melgunda Patil and his friend, Yogesh Naik, who are right-wing Hindutva activists and linked to the terrorist group of Sadhvi Pragya Thakur, were injured in the explosion, but Patil succumbed to injuries later in the hospital.
The bomb went off in a busy market in the town. Three other vehicles were damaged in the explosion that has sent shockwaves across the coastal state in Western India on the eve of Deepawali.
Yogesh Naik is member of Sanatan Sanstha, a hardcore Hindutva group that is linked to Pragya Thakur's Abhinav Bharat. Thakur is in jail for her alleged involvement in the Malegaon and Modasa blasts.
The scooter was parked behind a Church in Goa. The recovery of an electric circuit and bomb-related paraphernelia that was recovered at another place has also alarmed the local police. A high-alert has been sounded in Goa.
