Bengaluru cafe blast case: NIA raids two locations in Tamil Nadu

Chennai, Mar 5 (IANS): The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Tuesday was conducting raids at two places in Tamil Nadu in connection with its probe in the Bengaluru cafe blast case, said sources.

The raids were being conducted in Chennai and Cuddalore. NIA sources told IANS that the raids began in the morning in several other places in the country, including Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.

The NIA is conducting investigation following information that the Lashkar-e-Taiba south Indian commander Thadiyantavida Naseer had trained some youths in Bengaluru central jail and many of them are now out of prison.

The investigation of the Rameswaram Cafe blast, according to NIA sources, is focused on these youths and some of them are linked to Cuddalore and Chennai in Tamil Nadu.

On March 1, an explosion occurred in the Rameshwaram Cafe in Bengaluru's IT hub Whitefield. At least ten people were injured in the blast.

In October 2022 on the eve of Diwali, a 29-year-old youth Jameesha Mubin exploded himself near the Sangameswara temple in Ukkadam, Coimbatore. As the car blast took place before the set timing, the only casualty was the suicide bomber. NIA had taken over the investigation and arrested several people, including Mohammed Talka who is the nephew of the founder of Al Umma, S.A. Basha.

Basha was the prime accused in the Coimbatore bomb blast of 1998 in which 58 people were killed.

    The investigating agencies have a perpetual job on their hands of unearthing and destroying the local sleeper terror groups who provide logistic and moral support to the masterminds of bomb blasts. The NIA cannot , simply , afford to let it's guard down. Any laxity in this regard may claim more innocent lives in future.

    It is undeniable that there are these radicalized set of humans in a particular sect... Such people are living in their own destructive world... They are absolutely no use for even their family members... However due to that we can not hate the generalized communities... They are similar to the guy who threw acid on young girls yesterday... No meaning or future in whatever they give shape to... Unfortunately such erratic mentality is quite widespread and so eradication is out of question... Only we can do extensive pest control from time to time....

    No, he clearly refers to some in a particular sect where young innocent minds are being radicalized and trained in hidden sleeper cells. Aap jaante huwe bhi anjaan ho.

    Dear Prakash, changes in life can begin with one's self in the following ways and more. 1* upbringing of our progeny with a sense of patriotism instilled in their minds from a young age. 2* formal education of human values such as love, truth, peace, tolerance, kindness and good conduct. 3* restrictions of religious activities to religious places only.
