New Delhi: Two people have been arrested from Mirzapur distict of Uttar Pradesh by the National Investigation Agency (NIA), in connection with the Patna blasts which took place in October last year.

The two suspects have been identified as Ahmad Hussain and Fakruddin.

Low intensity blasts rocked Patna in October shortly before Modi’s address to a ‘Hunkar rally’ in Gandhi Maidan.

The Home Ministry had sent NSG and NIA teams to Patna for investigation into the Patna serial bomb blasts.

Six of the bombs went off inside and near Gandhi Maidan, the rally venue. The remaining two blasts took place inside a public convenience complex at Patna Junction.
