VELLORE/BANGALORE: Three terror suspects, arrested in connection with murders of several Hindu outfit leaders, were brought to Bangalore on Friday by state police for investigations, based on a court order.
The trio, Police Fakruddin, Panna Ismail and Bilal Malik, lodged in the Central Prison in Vellore, were brought to the city under heavy police escort and are likely to return in two days, police said.
The three are among the 14 accused in the April 17, 2013 blast near the BJP office in Malleswaram. A chargesheet has already been filed in the case last October.
Besides being involved in a series of murders of right-wing functionaries, including Madurai Suresh, Arvind Reddy and S Vellaiyappan, the three were also linked to the 2011 Madurai pipe bomb case that targeted BJP leader L K Advani.
Additional Commissioner of Police (crime) Pranab Mohanty told Express that the suspects were brought to the city by a team of Bangalore police for interrogation in connection with the Malleswaram bomb blast case and they will be produced before the court.
The interrogation may take two or three days and then they will be handed back to the Tamil Nadu police, Mohanty added.
