KOCHI: The Ernakulam Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate has issued a warrant to produce Leshkar-E-Taiba (LeT) operative Thadiyantavide Nazeer in the case in which he allegedly sent letters from jail to his associates outside.
The warrant is to produce Nazeer before the court on December 4 from the Parappana Agrahara Central Jail in Bengaluru where he is currently lodged.
The police team has already left for Bangaluru to submit the warrant at the court concerned, where trial in the Bengaluru blast case is progressing. The police are likely to visit the jail to record Nazeer’s arrest in the case.
Police officials, meanwhile, said since trial in the Bengaluru blast case is progressing, it would be difficult to produce Nazeer at the Additional Chief Magistrate Court on December 4.
Nazeer allegedly sent letters to members of the terror gang through Perumbavoor-native Shahanas and Kannur-native Taslim, who visited him in jail. He also allegedly sent mobile SIM cards and money while in police custody.
The secret operation of Nazeer to communicate with his aides came to light when Shahanas was arrested from the Ernakulam North railway station the other day.
The letters contained names of some witnesses in the Bengaluru blast case, and instructions to influence them.
