The Bengaluru  police will seek the custody of Soofiya Madani, wife of Kerala-based  Islamic leader Abdul Nasser Madani, in relation with the Bangalore blasts case.

Sources say Soofiya, who stands before a court seeking bail, is fast becoming a major link in several terror operations undertaken both in Karnataka and Kerala .

The investigators stumbled upon the links while interrogating T Nasir, an accused in the Bangalore blasts case.

Investigations conducted by the Bengaluru-Kerala-Tamil Nadu police reveal Soofiya was angered by the fact that her husband Madani was being treated poorly by the Coimbatore police.

The first part of the investigations suggests that the woman had directed Nasir and his accomplices to burn down a bus in Kalamassery so that a message could be sent out to the then Tamil Nadu government.

“Our investigations show that both Nasir and Abdul Sattar, the man who manufactured the bombs, were in contact with Soofiya,” Bengaluru police sources said.

Moreover, there is ample proof, they say, to indicate that both Nasir and Sattar were part of the Madani camp.

Both these persons were closely associated with Nasir after they joined his Islamic Sewak Sangh which was established in Kerala.

Nasir’s interrogation reveals that Soofiya had played an active part in the bus-burning incident. Besides, he told interrogators that she had also directed him to plant a bomb at the Press Club of Coimbatore in retaliation to her husband’s ill-treatment in jail.
