BENGALURU: A Bengaluru City Police team reached Tripura on Saturday to take 35-year-old Habib Miyan, a terror suspect into their custody. Habib was allegedly involved in the 2005 terror attack at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in Bengaluru.
The Gujarat Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) on Friday arrested Habib from Agartala in Tripura and was produced before a local court in Agartala on Saturday.

Praveen Sood, City Police Commissioner said, “A team with body warrant has reached Tripura and he will be brought to Bengaluru for interrogation.”
On December 28, 2005, one retired professor was killed and four others were injured when two attackers hurled hand grenades and opened fire randomly at the delegates in the IISC campus, when the 38th Annual Operational Research Society of India (ORSI) convention was underway.

In 2011, six of the accused were convicted in Bengaluru, who were were identified as Mohammed Raza-ul-Rehman, Azal Pasha, Mehboob Ibrahim, Miruddin Khan, Nizamuddin and Munna.
Police source said, “We are yet to confirm whether Habib was a gunman or a conspirator or helped other accused in Bengaluru strike.”
