Police arrested two more men in connection with Bombay's deadly train blasts, bringing to eight the number of people seized by investigators since the explosions killed more than 200 people earlier this month, an official said Friday. A senior Bombay police official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media, confirmed that the men were arrested late Thursday, but declined to provide more details. The Press Trust of India news agency identified the two as Faizal Sheikh and his brother Muzammil Sheikh, and said police suspected they had links with the Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Tayyaba, accused of several terror attacks in India, including the Bombay blasts.
