Police reveal hand behind Bangalore blast of April 17

Bangalore, Dec 2: The Bangalore Police has found that a charitable trust set up in Tamil Nadu apparently to help members of Al Ummah, a banned outfit, played a big part in the April 17 bomb blast outside a BJP office at Malleswaram here, a report published in The Indian Express said on Sunday.

The cops have pointed out in documents and chargesheet that the trust, Charitable Trust for Minorities set up in 2010, gave Rs 1.5 lakh for the funding of the explosion that left a few injured.

Al Ummah was also accused of the Coimbatore blasts of 1998 that targetted BJP leader L K Advani and killed 58 people. Based on statements issued by the accused named in the chargesheet, the Bangalore Police said that the trust played a key role in terror activities in Tamil Nadu flowing the ban of Al Ummah.

Police said the charitable trust was formed by a splinter group of Al Ummah after its founder S A Basha was seen using the organisations' money for his own legal defence in the 1998 blasts while ignoring arrests of dozens of other people, the report said.
