"Congress President Sonia Gandhi has condemned the attack at Mahabodhi temple in Bodh Gaya. Terming the incident as cowardly, she said that an attack on the sanctum sanctorum of peace was unfortunate to say the least. She expressed hope that the guilty will be brought to book at the earliest," the AICC said.
    
Congress General Secretary and communication department in-charge Ajay Maken had earlier said, "We condemn this horrific incident in Bodh Gaya. I urge the state government and other
agencies to bring the guilty to justice as soon as possible. We also wish speedy recovery to all the injured."
    
Terror struck one of the Holiest Buddhist shrines, the Mahabodhi Temple and other places in Bihar's pilgrimage town of Bodh Gaya on Sunday, with suspected Indian Mujahideen operatives simultaneously triggering nine low intensity bombs leaving two monks injured.
    
A five-member NIA team comprising a DIG and two SPs reached there by a special air-craft from New Delhi and began their probe at the temple complex.
