Bangalore: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Sunday grilled Obaid-ur-Rahman, one of the 15 men arrested in Bangalore in late September 2012 for allegedly planning to kill prominent politicians and journalists in Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra.

On Wednesday, the NIA had filed a chargesheet against 12 alleged Lashkar-e-Toiba cadres in the Bangalore NIA special court. Obaid-ur-Rahman was one of them.

The team flew to Bangalore on Saturday to question Obaid-ur-Rahman in connection with Hyderabad twin blasts, which killed 16 people and injured over 100 others.
