VEILED FACE OF TERROR: Abdul Sattar, a native of Malappuram in Kerala was arrested in Hyderabad.

New Delhi: Bangalore Police claims that the July 25, 2008 blasts case has been solved and all the main accused arrested. Nine persons have been arrested in connection with the serial blasts that had rocked the country’s IT hub and police say most of them are from Kerala.

The arrested men are Abdul Sattar, Abdul Jabbar, Mujeed, Faizal, Abdul Jaleel, Manaf, Sarfuddin, Badruddin and Fakria. They have all been arrested from Kerala.

The plot was revealed to the city police by Sattar during his interrogation. The Bangalore police had got his custody from the Hyderabad Police. All the arrests are linked to a Kerala-based terror module which sent youths to LeT camps in PoK.

He said that misguided local youth – who were influenced by the radical group in Kerala – were behind the blasts. “They did it to create a sensation,” he stated.

Bangalore Police Commissioner Shankar Bidri said the case was a watertight case.

“A dedicated team worked for three months on the case. The Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat Police helped us. Since no militant group had claimed the responsibilty for the blasts, our job tough was made even more tough,” he added.

“Four people who helped plan and execute the Bangalore blasts were killed by security forces in Jammu and Kashmir when they were trying to cross the border. It was major lead for our investigation,” Bidri said.

One person was killed and several people were injured on July 25, 2008, when nine low-intensity bombs exploded between 13:30 hrs IST and 14:15 hrs IST, some near the Electronic City in Bangalore.

This is the second time in two-and-a-half-years that the country’s infotech capital was struck by terror.

The Bangalore blasts followed a terror attack in the city in December 2005 and similar serial blasts in Jaipur on May 13.
