Kochi, Dec 19: Tamil Nadu police has reportedly questioned Sufiya Madani, the wife of PDP leader Abdul Madani, in connection with the Coimbatore Press Club case.
A two-member team headed by Inspector Shakitvel questioned Sufiya at Thrikkara Assistant Commissioner's office on Friday, Dec 18 morning ahead of being produced before the Aluva Magistrate Court.
The magistrate court has remanded Sufiya in judicial custody, in the case relating to the burning of a Tamil Nadu bus in Kalamassery in Kerala in 2005.
Sufiya's role in the planting of explosives at Coimbatore Press Club in 2002 surfaced after the arrest of suspected Lashkar-e-Toiba militant K Nazir. Nazir and Soofiya are believed to have had conversations over the phone.
Nazir is the main suspect in the press club case. He is believed to have planted explosives there to protest the detention of Madani in connection with the Feb 1998 serial bomb blasts in Coimbatore.
