Man supplying explosives to terrorists held

11 January, 2014

HYDERABAD: Hyderabad police claimed to have arrested a man who is suspected of supplying explosive materials to banned outfits.

"We hope that his arrest will lead to the nabbing of his contact persons in the outfits to whom he had sold the material," SP Headquarters Umer Tufail told APP on Friday. The suspect, Saleem, was arrested in a raid on Thursday evening. Tufail said the suspect owns a shop dealing in fireworks material.

"I have been getting intelligence reports about his secret links to the outfits and his practice of selling raw explosive material to them," Tufail said, adding that the police had monitored his activities for the last six months.

He said that Saleem was also booked for the 2004 separate blasts in two buses in Hyderabad, as the prime suspect of that case revealed that Saleem supplied him with the explosives. The Crime Investigation Cell In-charge Inspector Muneer Abbassi, who was also part of the raid, said that some 500 kilogrammes of raw explosive material was seized from Saleem's possession at the time of his arrest.

According to him, the police have clear leads that he supplied explosives to a banned Sindhi nationalist party, which was suspected of involvement in explosions on railway tracks, power pylons and branches of the National Bank of Pakistan.

End.
