Three suspected IM operatives held, huge cache of explosives seized

A suspected terror module of banned Indian Mujahideen was claimed to have been busted on Thursday with the arrest of its three alleged operatives and seizure of a huge cache of explosives, even as their possible role in the recent Bengaluru blast that killed a woman and injured three others was being probed.

The arrests were made during simultaneous raids in the city and at Bhatkal in Uttara Kannada district during which a “substantial” quantity of explosive substances used for making Improvised Explosive Devices were seized, Bengaluru Police Commissioner M N Reddi told reporters here.

Ammonium nitrate, detonators, electronic timer devices, digital circuits, circuit making material, PVC pipes, gel based explosive material and fuel oil were seized, he said. The communication equipment found is being examined to find out whether they could be an “additive” for the explosions device, he said.
