New Delhi: Bangladesh Rifles on Wednesday handed

involved in the 2005 Bangalore terror attack at the Indian
Institute of Sciences (IISc) that left an IIT professor dead.
The two suspected militants identified as Nazir and

antecedents and links and their activities."
The duo was being interrogated by a combined team of the
BSF and central security agencies, the sources said.
