Looking for clues of suspects in the Pune bombing attack, Indian investigators were examining a closed circuit television footage from a luxury hotel near the site of the bomb blast, reported the Indo-Asian News Service Monday.

The footage showed images of two men entering the German Bakery, which was bombed Saturday, with one talking over the phone and the other holding a backpack, said the report quoting an unidentified police official.

The footage has been obtained from the cameras installed on the gates of the luxury hotel situated across the road from the German Bakery.

However, the footage was too "grainy and coarse" to give any clues about the suspects in its present form, but it can reveal height, clothes, pattern of walking of the suspects, said the report.

Nine people were killed and more than 60 injured, 40 of them seriously, when a bomb hidden in a bag exploded in the popular restaurant, after a waiter tried to open the unattended bag noticed by a group of friends.
