Two suspected terrorists, believed to be involved in serial bombings in Bangalore and Ahmedabad, were arrested by the Chennai police on Monday. The suspects, Qazi Rahim, 31, and K Abdul Kader, 27, were named by Sheikh Abdul Ghaffoor, who was arrested on Sunday in Tirunelveli.
Ghafoor was planning blasts in Tamil Nadu and other parts of India on Independence Day, police officials said.
On initial interrogation Ghafoor revealed that he was an operative of a terrorist ring that calls itself believers in one god, whose kingpin is said to be Pakistan-trained P Ali Abdullah. Police officials believe that this group had worked out the logistics of the serial blasts in Bangalore and Ahmedabad.
