BANGALORE: Shortly after nine synchronised bomb blasts on July 26, 2008 had ripped apart Bangalore’s calm, T Nasir — the alleged mastermind — made a a phone call to Abdul Nasser Madani, the People’s Democratic Party leader in Kerala, according to the additional chargesheet filed by the police recently.

The revelations are part of the the confessional statement made by Nasir, which the police intend to use to establish Madani’s role in the blast conspiracy.

The charegsheet, a copy of which was reviewed by Express, says that Nasir has accepted  Madani as his leader.

According to the police, after orchestrating the blasts Nasir went in hiding at Madani’s office at Anvarssery.

Nasir’s confessional statement says that after conducting a recce in Bangalore, Nasir met Madani at the latter’s Ernakulam house and discussed in details the blast plan.

Madani is said to have assured him full cooperation.

Soon after the blast, Nasir had also called Sarfaraz Nawaz, also named as accused by the police.      

The additional chargesheet says that the bomb material were burgled from Thuruthil House, an explosives shop,  and made away with e Ammonium Nitrate, electronic detonators, gelatine sticks, safety wires etc.   

The additional chargesheet explains that Nasir was lured by Madani during his Islamic Sevak Sangh days(ISS). The ISS — a radical outfit formed by Madani — had held public meetings in and around Kerala. Nasir, influenced by his Madani’s provocative speeches, became a staunch follower.

Madani gave Nasir books like Maalim-Fi-I-Tarriq, Abu-ul-modudi, Biography of Hasan-Ul-Banah — all aimed at filling him with hate.

After indoctrination, Nasir started an organization called the ‘Sil-Sila-Noorlisha-Tharikath’ with the help of Madani to recruit more like-minded youth.
