Last year, a Patna’s Juvenile Justice Board had convicted the juvenile and sentenced him to three years jail term in connection with the Patna and Bodh Gaya blast cases.
The accused juvenile was involved in the conspiracy of carrying out explosions in both the places.
The accused were also involved in Patna’s Gandhi Maidan explosion.
On July 7, 2013, a series of 10 bombs exploded in and around the famous Maha Bodhi temple, situated at the spot where Buddha is said to have attained enlightenment, injuring five people, including two monks.
