BENGALURU: The police department on Thursday informed the High Court that those who were allegedly involved in the murder of RSS worker Rudresh had no personal enmity with him. They were however in contact with the banned outfits Indian Mujahideen and Al Ummah.
The police department also informed the court that the accused were trained on how to instantly kill a person by cutting the throat with a single stroke to stop blood supply to the brain, as was done in the case of Rudresh.

State Public Prosecutor-II Sandesh J Chouta made a submission to this effect before Justice John Michael Cunha during the hearing of the case.
Chouta submitted that call records revealed that the accused were in frequent contact with an Indian Mujahideen leader and also had links with Al-Ummah, which is banned in Tamil Nadu.
Chouta further submitted that the accused disclosed that they were trained to kill leaders of a certain community.
The accused including Popular Front of India leader Asim Sharif challenged the case, which was taken over by the NIA from the police, on the ground that it has no power to take the case voluntarily and that they were falsely implicated.
