Raid on Popular Front camp: K`taka police team in
Kannur (Ker): A three-member team of Internal Security Department of Karnataka Police has gathered details from Kerala Police on recent arrest of 21 activists of radical outfit Popular Front after raiding its "armed training camp" at Narath near here.
The Karnataka team, which arrived last evening, primarily wanted to know whether the arrested had any links with recent blast in Bangalore, police said.
The team members, led by a DYSP, held discussions with their Kerala counterparts and visited the building premises that was raided and from where some lethal weapons and inflammatory pamphlets were seized by police, they said.
The Karnataka officials met DSP Rahul R Nair and DYSP P Sukukamaran, who heads the special team probing the case.
Three country-made bombs and a sword were seized in the raid on April 23 at an under construction building at Narath and 21 people were arrested in connection with the incident.
Meanwhile, PF leaders refuted the charge that they had been running an "armed training" camp in the area and the premises that the police raided was just a "workout joint".
