Describing Indian suspects in the foiled UK terror bids as "more dangerous than rogues on street", Karnataka government on Monday said there was "credible" information about the involvement of Kafeel Ahmed, who drove a blazing jeep into the Glasgow airport, in the incidents.
"Whatever information we have got, whatever the results of our interrogation observed, there seems to be a very conclusive evidence about that (Kafeel's role in the foiled plot)," state Home Minister MP Prakash told NDTV.
"I have credible information (about Kafeel's involvement)...Whatever information that government of England has sent, they have sent it to Central government. Generally, they deal nation to nation," he said adding state police is in touch with central intelligence agencies.
Kafeel is undergoing treatment in a hospital in UK after he suffered serious burn injuries in the incident.
About Mohammed Haneef, Kafeel's cousin and the Indian doctor detained in Australia, Prakash said the Indian doctor was a "misguided youth who had the bent of mind to plan it that way.
"Haneef's presence as such at the place where the blast had taken place is not yet there. However, his antecedents have been checked," he said.
"Apparently these people are very sober, very intelligent and courteous people. People will not suspect that they harbour such views in their mind. They are more dangerous than rogues on the street," he added.
He said he cannot reveal details about the investigations conducted by Karnataka Police because there were some "procedural" proprieties as whatever information they received from London were routed through the Central government.
