Hyderabad blasts: NIA to question duo arrested by Bihar police from Indo-Nepal border

Patna: A team of the National Investigation Agency is visiting Raxaul in Bihar to interrogate two suspects there in connection with the Hyderabad blasts. The two suspects, one a resident of Hyderabad and the other a Somalian national, had been arrested on Saturday evening from a village in Raxaul on the Indo-Nepal border, by immigration officials.

The two did not have valid travel documents, and more importantly, a camera was found in their possession which carried 'non-touristy' images of Hyderabad, such as a police station and a railway station.

As of now, there is no confirmation whether the two, Somalian national Abdullah Umran Makran and Mohammad Adam of Hyderabad, are connected to the Dilsukh Nagar blasts. However, the NIA team is hoping to get some clues from them.

The two had reportedly gone to Delhi recently from Hyderabad and from the national capital, they reached Raxaul by train. Superintendent of Police of East Champaran district Ganesh Kumar, however, dismissed any link between the arrested and the twin bomb blasts. A laptop, a mobile and driving license made in Hyderabad have been seized from the two, apart from the camera.

The Somalian does not have a passport. A case has been registered against the two with Raxaul police station and the SP said that the duo would be subjected to rigorous questioning.

The police added that the two were staying in Kathmandu and had recently illegally entered into East Champaran district in a bid to collect papers for passport preparation and were returning to Nepal the same way.
