    BANGALORE: Sleuths questioning Yasin Bhatkal were hugely embarrassed after the terror mastermind revealed that three of his associates on a recce had bribed a police inspector to get access to the Chinnaswamy stadium here.

    During that visit, they saw an IPL match a few days before they triggered serial blasts there on April 17, 2010. The Bhatkal-born terror suspect, who was brought to Bangalore last month for questioning into his role in the stadium blasts, said the officer took a bribe of Rs 2,000 from each associate. He then gave them complimentary passes and allowed them inside, sources told TOI.

    A few days later, Bhatkal allegedly triggered the serial blasts which left 15 wounded when another IPL T20 match was under way at the stadium.

    According to Yasin, eight of his associates took part in the recce to identify places to plant the bombs. Two climbed a tree adjacent to the net practice venue and three others walked around the stadium. The remaining three befriended the officer near the gate and asked him to let them inside.

    "After much cajoling, the inspector gave three complimentary passes and took Rs 6,000 from them. The three went to different galleries and watched the match," a source quoted Bhatkal telling his interrogators.

    The trio was not even aware of the teams which played that day. "The three made mental notes on the places to plant the bombs. However, the plan failed as they placed bombs near the gates due to heavy security at the entrance and the presence of metal detectors," the source said.

    A top city police officer said he was not aware of any such revelation. "It's not possible for anyone to enter without valid tickets as KSCA deploys its men near the entrance. This may be a false claim by Yasin to defame Bangalore police. However, we'll investigate the allegations," he said.
