MUNNAR: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Friday grilled Bihar resident Jameel Suffikal, 23, to find the possibilty of his alleged links with the Indian Mujahideen (IM) terrorists Zia-ur-Rehman alias Waqas of Pakistan and Tehsin Akhtar alias Monu.

A three-member NIA team from Kochi interrogated Jameel who had been absconding for the last few months after the arrest of the duo, Alex M Varkey, SP, told ‘Express.’

The Kerala police also quizzed him earlier after his arrest on Friday morning by Munnar SI Sreenivasan.

Jameel landed into trouble for helping the duo get a cottage on rent to evade the police. Jameel went missing knowing that a team of the Delhi Police brought the two terrorists to Munnar a few months back to gather evidence. There are no criminal cases against Jameel in Kerala, Varkey said.

The two terrorists were believed to be in Munnar for a few months in late 2013 and early 2014. Jameel was reported to be hiding in Mumbai from where he arrived at Munnar on Thursday night and was taken into custody on Friday morning by Munnar SI Srinivasan, Varkey said. He is believed to have taken the rail route as a ticket was found in his pocket.

Terror suspect Zia-ur-Rehman alias Waqas of Pakistan was arrested from Ajmer some months back. Three days after his arrest, The Special Cell of the Delhi Police had arrested Tehseen Akhtar alias Monu from Naxalbari in Darjeeling in West Bengal.
