The NIA has registered an open-ended FIR in connection with the IM’s activities. The agency will soon register a separate FIR in connection with the Hyderabad blast.
The agency had taken on remand two IM operatives Syed Maqbool and Imran, who did recee of Hyderabad in July last year. They were arrested by the Delhi police in connection with the Pune blasts.
After their questioning, the NIA will now grill another alleged IM operative Obaie-Ur-Rehman who is currently lodged in a Bangalore jail.
“There are around half-a-dozen Andhra residents under NIA’s scanner for their alleged involvement in the Hyderabad blasts. Investigators have reasons to believe that Rehman may have information about them...,” a home ministry official said.
