New Delhi, Aug 20: Security agencies probing the recent Pune serial blasts have claimed that Mohammed Sajjid, a founding member of banned Indian Mujahideen(IM), was the key suspect in the attack.

Official sources said today that a bicycle shop owner who was shown pictures of some suspects identified Sajjid alias 'Bada Sajjid' as the man who had purchased from him one of the cycles used in the explosions.

Low intensity bombs were strapped on to three bicycles and dustbins in five coordinated multiple explosions at J M Road in the heart of Pune on August one leaving one person injured.
