NEW DELHI, July 21 (UPI) -- An Indian court has ordered three suspects arrested in the investigation into the July 11 train bombings in Bombay to be held an additional three days.

The three suspects were ordered back into custody after being charged with murder, attempted murder and violating sections of the Explosive Substance Act, Indian Explosives Act and Indian Railways Act, the Press Trust of India reported. The country's Anti-Terrorist Squad alleged that about 3.3 pounds of gunpowder was found in the possession of the three men.

A government official also said Friday that evidence will soon be given proving the involvement of organizations inside Pakistan in the attacks, the Press Trust of India said.

"Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has spoken about proving the involvement of Pakistan-based terrorists in the blast. Let me inform the House that our police will soon submit proof of the involvement of Pakistan-based terrorist organizations in the blasts," Deputy Chief Minister R.R. Patil said.
