Bangalore blast – Accused used RSS activist’s sim card


Bangalore, May 13: The police have arrested two Coimbatore-based suspected terrorists from their hideout in Kacheri near Kunnamkulam, Thrissur, Kerala, in connection with the blast near BJP office in Malleshwaram on April 17 here.

The arrested suspects are Zulfikar Ali (22) and Shabbir (24). They were hiding in the house of a relative of Shabbir there.

The arrests were made after the police teams of Karnataka and Kerala followed the lead of cell phone signals of the accused. The police had strong doubt that the terrorists had Kerala connection since the last several days. Now, the number of arrested persons relating to the blast has gone up to 13.

The police personnel have found that the terrorists had used the sim card standing in the name of a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leader, who is popular in Karnataka-Kerala border region. Although the sim card of the leader was stolen a day before the blast, the leader had not filed any complaint, sources said.  But, the police have chosen to keep the identity of this RSS leader a secret, and they are looking into the circumstances under which the miscreants got hold of this and other sim cards.

It is gathered that the main accused in the case, Kichen Buhari, had 16 sim cards, including the one stated above. The terrorists used these sim cards for talking to one another, and used one of the sim cards for setting of a blast. The police are scrutinizing the call details relating to these sim cards.
