BENGALURU: Habib Miyan, the 35-year old suspect in the December 2005 terror attack at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in Bengaluru, was brought to Bengaluru, on Sunday.
Subsequently, he was produced before the court by a special team from City Crime Branch (CCB) police. Habib was later taken in to police custody for questioning.
“We are yet to confirm whether Habib was a gunman or a conspirator or helped other accused," a police source said.
The Gujarat Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) had arrested Habib from Agartala in Tripura on Friday.
On December 28, 2005, one retired professor was killed and four others were injured when two attackers hurled hand grenades and opened fire at the delegates at the IISc campus, when the 38th Annual Operational Research Society of India (ORSI) convention was underway.
In 2011, six of the accused--identified as Mohammed Raza-ul-Rehman, Azal Pasha, Mehboob Ibrahim, Miruddin Khan, Nizamuddin and Munna--were convicted in Bengaluru.
