Another accused in Kerala twin bomb blasts grilled
Kozhikode: The National Investigating
Agency, probing various terror-related cases in Kerala, on Wednesday
took Shafas, a key accused in the March 2006 twin bomb blasts
here, to three spots in the city as part of evidence gathering
in the case.
The team led by NIA Superintendent T K Rajmohan took
Shafas, a close accomplice of T Nazir, who plotted the blasts
reportedly to avenge the 2002 Marad communal clashes in which
five persons were killed, to spots close to the Markas mosque
complex, Palayam mosque and the KSRTC bus station amid tight
security, NIA sources said.
Two persons, including a police constable, were
injured in the blasts in the private bus and the KSRTC bus
stations here on March 3, 2006.
Shafas, brought here from Viyyur Central Jail in
Thrissur, was subjected to sustained interrogation yesterday.
The NIA had last week interrogated Nazir, a suspected
Lashkar operative, in connection with the blasts and also took
him to various spots for evidence gathering.
