Chennai Police arrest two after busting TN terror module Apr 23, 9:12 am
Chennai, April 23 (ANI): Chennai Police reportedly arrested two persons late on Monday for their alleged role in perpetrating the bomb blast near the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) office in Bangalore last week. Media reports quoted city police officials, as saying that the arrested persons have been identified as Peer Mohideen from Bangalore and Basheer from Tirunelveli. The media reports further revealed that the arrests were effected through a joint security operation of the Chennai Police and the Bangalore Police, besides other law enforcement agencies. Law enforcement authorities are claiming that they have been successful in cracking a new terrorist module that had not been previously known to exist. The Hindu newspaper quoted police officials, as saying that the two arrested persons had played a "vital role" in the blast, and were tracked down through scrutiny of mobile phone call records of suspects in the Bangalore blast. According to a CNN-IBN report, Mohideen and Basheer were identified on the basis of two computer-aided portraits of two persons drawn from inputs provided by the person who sold the motorcycle that was alleged used in the blast. Based on those portraits, a Bangalore police team arrived in Chennai on Sunday and carried out investigations with Tamil Nadu Police. The chassis number and engine number of the motorcycle too provided crucial leads that led up to the arrested persons, reports the Indian Express. The chassis number led the police, through the vehicle manufacturer, to its first owner, R. Prakash, a resident of New Perungaulthur near Chennai. From Prakash, the police traced the second buyer, who had identified himself as Anwar Basha, but had allegedly used fake identity proof. Police also probed the call details relating to 'Basha's' mobile SIM card, which then led them to others he was in touch with, who too were using SIM cards bought with fake identities. Police officials claimed that while the terrorist module in Tamil Nadu had been identified as having been responsible for the Bangalore blast, it wasn't immediately clear where they learnt to put together the bombs and plan out the attack.
