When Asadullah Akthar, who is suspected to have played a role in Dilsuknagar twin blasts case, came to Bahadurpura in the past to look for accommodation, he reportedly told local people that he was a B. Tech graduate in search of a job.

The NIA had this piece of information on interrogating Akthar who was recently arrested on the Indo-Nepal border.

The NIA, basing on his confession, brought him to Hyderabad on a PT warrant and picked up the youth who helped him stay in Bhadurpura.

Some persons had recently approached the Rajendranagar and Bahadurpura police stations alleging their family members had been picked up. The police who initially thought that they were simply missing are now wondering if they are in the custody of the NIA.

The NIA officials, according to sources, located the house where Asadullah had stayed and allegedly collected some material from there, part of which may have been used for making explosives used in the Dilsukhnagar blasts.

Asadullah Akhtar is suspected to have played a role in blasts in five states including the Dilshuknagar twin blasts, Lumbini Park and Gokul Chat blasts in Andhra Pradesh. He is a graduate in pharmacy from Integral University, Lucknow and worked closely with Riyaz Bhatkal and Iqbal Bhatkal - suspects in the blasts.
