Patna: Just two days after two live bombs were recovered from Patna in Bihar, sources suggest that they were likely to be used during Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah's rally on April 14, 2014.

According to sources, Shah's rally was a possible target of the group from whom timer-attached bombs were recovered in Patna. Investigators have also claimed that they have foiled possible serial blasts in the city. During the interrogation, the three arrested persons have revealed that terrorists were planning serial blasts in Patna.

Sources also suggest that the police have found the same kind of material that was used for blasts at Prime Minister Narendra Modi rally at Gandhi Maidan in Patna in October 2013.

The then Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde had claimed that the Gandhi Maidan blasts were planned by the same group which launched multiple blasts in the Bodh Gaya temple on July 7, 2013.
