Bangalore, Jul 19: Police are probing the possibility of involvement of Karnataka Forum for Dignity (KFD) in the 2009 Mysore communal violence and terror strike at Indian Institute of Science here, Home Minister R Ashoka said today (Jul 19).

Investigation into a murder case in which three members of KFD were arrested, has revealed that the organisation has a wide network, after 40 SIM cards were recovered from the accused, he told reporters.

Several BJP leaders in the State have demanded a ban on KFD, terming it a "terror outfit". Ashoka said KFD members' modus operandi is to extort money from rich people, and split the cash amount for themselves and for the organisation.

An IIT Delhi professor was killed and four people were injured in the 2005 terror strike at IISc.
