Mohammad Abdul alias Alam (25), a suspect in Dulshuknagar twin blasts who was arrested by security forces in East Champaran district of North Bihar on Saturday, obtained his driving license from Attapur Regional Transport Office in Ranga Reddy district. It is also said he obtained the license by submitting fake documents through a middleman.

Transport officials got in touch with Raxaul (Bihar) (DSP) Jitendra Pandey and noted details of Alam’s driving license seized by Raxaul police.

Meanwhile, the railway police are also verifying the recordings of CCTVs at railway stations for the footage of Alam and Makrani.

A senior transport official said the license was issued by Attapur RTO office and preliminary probe revealed that Alam approached a middlemen and submitted a fabricated residential proof. As per the driving license, Alam is the resident of Syed Arcade at Saptagiri colony in Mehdipatnam.

Intelligence Bureau (IB) officials grilled Alam after recovering a footage of Secunderabad railway station and photographs of prominent monuments in Hyderabad.

With the IB officials suspecting Alam’s role in the twin blasts, Humayunagar police visited Syed Arcade on Sunday and reportedly questioned building owner Syed about Alam’s stay at the house.

Syed (56) reportedly told them that no tenant by name Alam lived there and that he never let out his house to unknown persons. Many tenants live in the two-storey building and all are known to his family, he said. Humayunagar police also questioned people in the neighbourhood.

Mohammad Alam and his Somali friend Abdullah Omar Makrani had been arrested near the Indian immigration office at Raxaul, close to the Indo-Nepal border, when they were trying to sneak into Nepal.
