DAVANGERE: Fulbar Hussain, who was arrested on Wednesday night in connection with the October 2014 bomb blast in Assam, was hiding in Honnali taluk till he received a call from his brother recently.
An intelligence agency traced the call and alerted the Davangere and Shivamogga police, who nabbed Hussain, according to police sources.
For the last two months, he was working as a daily wage labourer and as a driver of a tipper truck near Kattigemadenehalli village in the taluk where road work was going on.
The private agency that hired him also got to learn that Hussain was wanted in a bomb blast case only after he was arrested, police sources said.

On Thursday, he was produced before judicial magistrate first class (JMFC) Usharani, who remanded Hussain in judicial custody. Later, he was shifted to the Davangere sub-jail, police said.
