Stating this, Superintendent of Police Manoj Kaushik told a news agency here that the three-day interrogation of Yadav and Malakar by the National Investigation Agency and the police which has concluded, confirmed links between Maoists operating in Bihar and Jharkhand and terrorists operating elsewhere in the country.

Stating that foreign arms were finding passage through North Eastern outlets, he refused to disclose the names of terror outfits on security grounds.

He said the two revealed some names and teams would be sent to Delhi and other states for verification.
