 Waynad: Police held searches in the houses of the relatives of Ibrahim Moulvi of Vellamunda, Wayanad, believed to be one of the top ideological instructors of the LeT in Malabar region. The houses raided included Ibrahim’s ancestral home and his sister’s house in Varampatta, Wayanad.

The house was rented out to Shafaz from Thayyil, Kannur by owner Moythutti, Mottathu on the instruction of Anthru, a friend of Ibrahim Moulvi. It was mysterious that Anthru had arranged this house for the stay of the suspects despite the fact that he had his own quarters, police said.

According to the police, two women named Nusaiba and Ayisha had been staying with Shafaz and that both had to go out wearing purdah. It was also reported that Nusaiba, who was pregnant, could have been from Hyderabad and could speak only Hindi while in Varampatta. They also sealed the house in Varampatta, where certain people connected to Ibrahim had been living on rent.

Officials said that those who had stayed at this rented house for 20 days saying they were teaching at a college in Padinjarethara had left the place with the intensification of the police operations against terror elements. The police suspected that Ibrahim Moulvi, who had made Kannur his base for terror operations, had fled for Hyderabad, where LeT had been running camps for training terror recruits.
