Davanagere, Karnataka, Jan 30 (UNI) A six-member investigation team from Gujarat arrived here today to grill Raziuddin alias Mohammad Ghouse, who was arrested by the district police for having alleged links with the banned SIMI, in connection with the Haren Pandya murder case.
Police sources, while confirming the arrival of Gujarat Police, said the father of the detained, Mohammed Nazaruddin, was in Tihar jail as one of the accused in the Pandya murder case.
Meanwhile, the police team, which arrived from Andhra Pradesh to question Raziuddin for his alleged link with the Mecca Masjid blasts in Hyderabad, returned with 'specific clues' that could lead to the culprits involved in the conspiracy.
Police would seek the court's permission for extension of police custody of the arrested, which expired on February one, the sources said.
Meanwhile, the CDs and pen drives seized from Asadulla, who was arrested along with Raziuddin in Honnali on January 11, had not revealed any significant information. However, it was confirmed during interrogation that Raziuddin had underwent training in Pakistan, the sources said.
