Does not necessarily mean that the iCats had been broken into. The cars might have been purchased on the used car market.

Right on.

There was no report of these wagon R's being stolen, in fact they caught 2/3 dealers around Surat for selling these cars, meaning, the car was sold with the original key and the security was / is intact.

I remember pretty well that at least one of the Wagons used in the Ahmedabad blast was stolen from Navi Mumbai. So they would have broken into the iCats if all of them were iCats enabled.

Zappo, Maruti started fitting iCATs in April-May 2007. The new, facelifted WagonRs had already been selling for a couple of months by then, without the iCATs. Only from May 2007 onwards, ALL Maruti cars were iCATs equipped. Almost impossible to tell by looks alone. You'd need to know the date of manufacture.

============
TOI 30th July, 08.

"Wagon R (MH-43-R-3569), stolen from Vashi and found abandoned with explosives in Surat with a fake number plate (GJ-6-CD-3569), belongs to Neeta Madhav of Sector 6 in Vashi.

A second stolen from Panvel (MH-06 8294), was also abandoned in Surat with explosives. It is owned by Pradeep Vaylar of Panvel. The thieves put a fake number plate (GJ-6-CD-8294) on it too.

The third vehicle, a Maruti 800 (MH-05-H-5764), was used in the LG Hospital blast in Ahmedabad with a fake number plate (GJ-6-CD-5764). It was owned by Raj Kumar Oberoi from Nerul. The fourth car (MH-06-AF-9719) was stolen from Panvel and used in the civil hospital blast with a fake number plate (GJ-6-CD-9817). It belonged to Narsappa Nageshwar of Panvel."
=============

@Zappo, you're right, the cars used the explosion at Ahemdabad were stolen. No mention of icats or if the cars were older models etc.,

I was confused between 2 other cars involved, one in Surat and Ahmedabad, Wagon Rs, bought from Navsari and the cops grilled the dealers.

and poor WagonR owners in Surat faced the brunt by being stopped for silly reasons like "dark" films - and that too on visual inspection at twilight.
