KOZHIKODE: THE Special Investigation Team (SIT), probing  the Malappuram collectorate blast, has stumbled upon some crucial evidence and are hot on the heels of the suspects. Police officers said the team has put certain suspects under surveillance based on the inputs they have received during the last two days.

Thrissur range Inspector General M R Ajith Kumar has been closely monitoring the progress of the probe. The team has started tracking the details of the mobile phones which were in the vicinity of the collectorate before and after the blast.

“The pen drive recovered from the spot is being forensically analysed to collect digital signatures to know the systems in which it was used. Police teams are also scouting for images from all possible surveillance cameras in and around the spot,” the officers said.

It has been learnt that a team is camping in Kannur to track the activities of a few suspects. However, none of the senior police officers have confirmed given the fact that any leaked information could adversely affect the probe.

The investigators are also coordinating with their counterparts in Tamil Nadu police to ascertain the details of the suspects who have travelled to Tamil Nadu in the last couple of days. The SIT is also working in tandem with the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to track the suspects considering the role of elements from outside the state behind the attack. “The team will be analysing the visuals from the speed cameras on the state and national highways in the district to track the suspects,” said a police officer.
