The sketches of a suspect in monk attire have been released based on details provided by eyewitnesses and CCTV footage.

Two sketches of a suspect in the Bodh Gaya serial bomb blasts case were on Tuesday released by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on its website. It has said he is likely to be an Indian national.

“Two sketches [with and without mask] of the suspect who was wearing the dress of a Buddhist monk, have been developed with the leads available,” a NIA release said.

In an uploaded video clip, the agency merged clips from the CCTV footage where the suspect was seen. The NIA prepared the sketches based on eyewitness accounts and the CCTV footage. “...we have relied on the witness statements. We revisited the CCTV footage based on their accounts,” an informed source told The Hindu.
