Bangalore Police on Monday said it has seized some "high capacity" compact discs and other materials from the city residence of UK terror plot suspect Kafeel Ahmed.
"We have seized discs of high capacity and other material that Kafeel left behind before leaving for the UK," Police Commissioner N Achutha Rao told reporters in Bangalore.
He, however, refused to divulge the contents of the discs and the other material seized from Ahmed's residence.
The discs were currently being examined by the investigating team to trace whether they were linked to the UK terror plot or any other terrorist network in India.
Investigations were on to find out if there there were any links between the UK terror plot and the attack at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in Bangalore two years ago, he said.
As of now no connection between the two had been established, he said.
Following inputs from both the investigating teams here and other sources, police had begun enquiries and were quizzing family members, friends, associates of Kafeel, Sabeel and Haneef, the three UK terror plot suspects. "The enquiries are still in progress", he said.
Asked whether the key accused, Bilal Abdullah had visited the country, the Police Commissioner said, "As of now, we have no information on his visit".
To a query if the police had found if any Pakistanis visiting India had given Kafeel Ahmed's address as their local reference, Rao said, "We still have to verify that."
Both the Central and State investigative agencies were working in close coordination to probe into the alleged links of the trio with terrorist outfits, he said.
The investigating teams were trying to unearth if the trio had any network in India and Bangalore in particular, the Commissioner said.
A special anti-terrorist squad had been drawn up from the city police for investigations.
