Mangaluru: In the latest development in the Mangaluru auto blast case, an accused, identified as Roohullah, was arrested by the Bengaluru Police and handed over to Mysuru Police.
After briefly questioning Rooullah, the Mysore Police handed him over to the Mangalore police. At present, he is in custody of the Mangalore Police.
Roohullah worked as a delivery boy and is considered to be an associate of Mohammad Shariq. It may be recalled that Mohammad Shariq is carried a fake Aadhaar card with a Hindu name when the cooker bomb exploded in an auto on November 19 he was travelling in.
Roohullah is a native of Mysuru. He befriended auto blast accused Shariq in Mysuru. He had come to Bengaluru for some work and was staying at KJ Halli. Based on Mysuru police request, Roohullah was arrested in Bangalore. Mysuru Police on Monday night handed him over to the Mangalore Police.
Meanwhile, reports stated that Shariq’s health condition is slightly better. The police have started questioning him. However, the officials have only been able to do little bit of questioning as Shariq is yet to recover completely.
The auto car explosion incident in Mangaluru took place on November 19 on a busy road in the city. The police have confirmed that it is an act of terror.
It may be noted that following the October 23 Coimbatore car blast incident, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) has been conducting searches across Tamil Nadu to arrest the terror operatives and their contacts.
Terror operative Jameesha Mubin was charred to death in the Coimbatore car blast case.
Reports have claimed that Shariq had links with the Coimbatore blast accused Jameesha Mubin .
