Maharashtra Bombs - The story continues

There is some further news on the the Maharashtra bombs attack. Refer this news article:
The police claim that they believe that the bombs were not using RDX, instead these were bombs that were made locally. And I believe that that will be the end of the story, any investigation that happens will be on a half-hearted scale. They will arrest a few people, and then a lot of well meaning intellectuals will scream that the police is doing investigations using a religious bias, and that is where the story will end.
These bombs being made locally is a far more serious threat. If the bombs were using RDX, then there is a logistical loop involved in getting the RDX, and that gives the police a further chance to break the chain. If these bombs are made using locally available materials, then there is a strong possibility that the terrorist cell involved in this terrorist activity is more self-contained and far more difficult to detect. It also serves as a role model for wanna-be terrorists looking to emulate these activities.
