Mangaluru: Cooker bomb blast accused Shariq recovers, police begin probe

Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (SS)

Mangaluru, Nov 30: Police have begun interrogating Shariq (24), an accused in the Mangaluru cooker bomb blast that occurred in Naguri on November 19.

A team of police personnel led by commissioner N Shashi Kumar grilled the accused for about four hours and gathered some information, it is learnt.

Shariq had suffered 45% burns due to the cooker blast and his lungs were filled with smoke. His eyes were also affected due to the blast. He was being treated in a private hospital amidst tight police security.

Meanwhile, Mangaluru police and Tamil Nadu police have begun investigation into the blasts that occurred at Mangaluru and Coimbatore as there seems to be a connection between the two incidents. Tamil Nadu police are investigating the places where Shariq had stayed during his visit. The police have visited Madurai, Nagercoil and Kanyakumari where Shariq had visited. It is learnt that Shariq had checked into a hotel in Nagercoil under the name Premraj and had stayed there for four days. He had produced a fake Aadhar card to prove his identity, it is learnt.

The government of Karnataka has handed over the investigation to NIA. The investigating agency has submitted the documents pertaining to the case to 7th JMFC Mangaluru district court and an order is awaited on the bomb blast trial.

It is also learnt that the NIA is extending its scope of investigation to Kasargod district in relation to the cooker blast. The Kasargod police have also begun an investigation.

Police have also stumbled upon some leads in the case regarding Shariq's drug deals in Kochi. It is learnt that a group of ten people including some women from Kerala had flown overseas and joined the Islamic State (IS) terror outfit that is operational in Syria and Afghanistan. Some of them died in an operation while a few others are serving jail terms in Afghanistan.

The police and the investigating team suspect that there may be a connection between the IS team and the Mangaluru cooker blast incident.

    "Mangaluru: Cooker bomb blast accused Shariq recovers, police begin probe" ........It is either because of the exceptionally good medical treatment he has received, and/or the prayers and blessings from that great religious scholar who inspired him. I can't name him but I'll give you a hint. He is on the India's most wanted list. This Shaikh has being given VIP treatment by the host country, asking him to conduct official lectures to inspire more people. India on the other side made another wrong decision by sending our VP, they should have sent our very own Nupur Sharma as the head of Indian delegation. Perhaps, that would been a more befitting reply.

    Dear Fayaz Ahmed, Mangalore/Dubai Really appreciate your articulation. I wish the majority from your community thought so (Imagine UT Khadhar coming out loud) and would be vociferous of happenings in India. You will find more people supporting you against extremist logic from all sides. At the end of the day, we want to live peacefully without any hidden agenda and most importantly, free of Maulvi agenda. Use Mosque for what it is....attain peace and connect self to God to be at peace and harmony. The problem is political Islam, and there is a long history that which is the root of mistrust. Recent "reported" cases are not helping either. Hence, need of the time is 3D..dialogue, dialogue, dialogue and not some hidden surprise in pressure cooker. For dialogue, there has to be acceptance of past mistakes, whether willful or otherwise. Your comment is light at the end of tunnel I suppose for 3D.

    Any terrorist attack is against the soul of the nation... Speedy trial must follow the investigations and this guy must never be allowed outside the compound walls of the jail... Terrorist act does not kill one religion alone... It kills the most innocent and most unconnected... Most important at this point of time is to increase inter communal harmony... 37% of UK do not care for any religion... Our people also must leave religious feelings at homes while stepping out...
