Chennai: Panna Ismail, one of the terror suspects arrested by Tamil Nadu Police recently, was on Saturday discharged from the government hospital here where he was undergoing treatment for bullet injuries sustained in the operation to nab him.

He was lodged in the Puzhal Central prison, police said.

Ismail was admitted to the hospital after he suffered bullet injuries during the October 5 police operations at his hideout in Puttur in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh.

His accomplices -- Bilal Malik, arrested along with him, and 'Police' Fakruddin, detained a day earlier here -- are lodged in Vellore prison.

Meanwhile, a senior police officer said the three suspects would soon be taken to Salem, where BJP's state General Secretary Ramesh was killed in July.

The three, allegedly involved in more than six cases, including the one related to planting of a pipe bomb on the yatra route of BJP leader L K Advani near Madurai in 2011, had been eluding the dragnet of police who had announced a cash reward of Rs 5 lakh on each of them.

The fourth terror suspect Siddique is still at large.
