Mufti Mohammad Ismail said, "An incident of firing took place in city, why was no FIR registered? If it comes to us, then Police department should note that if we know to maintain peace then we also know how peace would go away."

Six people were killed and over 100 injured when an explosive device strapped to a motorcycle went off near a mosque in Malegaon, a town in north Maharashtra, on September 29, 2008.
