Indore, Oct 8(UNI) A special police team has been constituted to search out members of the sleeping cell of banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), which was allegedly involved in the recent serial bomb blasts across the country.
Deputy Superintendent of Police Rajesh Vyas will head the four-member team to identify the sympathisers and supporters of SIMI workers, Superintendent of Police R K Choudhary said today.
As many as 12 prominent SIMI leaders, including its chief Safdar Nagori, were arrested recently from Indore and nearby areas. Later those detained for their alleged involvement in the serial bomb blasts made the revelation that they had planned the strike in their meetings at Indore and Mhow.
Meanwhile, Mr Rajesh Vyas said efforts were on to identity those close to SIMI since its inception or those who recently severed their links with it after the recent bomb blasts. No concrete action could be taken against fund donors or other sympathisers earlier in the absence of concrete evidence, he added.
