Rehaman was arrested by Karnataka police in January 2006 after the attack on December 27. Based on his confessions, that state police brought him to inspect the place where he stayed and met people.

According to police, Rehman selected Gulbarga as a base for his activities. He rented a house and was staying with his family. He claimed to be a car mechanic. Though Rehman initially thought to make AP his base, he later realised it was difficult to carry on his activities. He shifted to Gulbarga as it was near AP and Maharastra.

Police suspect that Abdul Rehman, who was good at playing cricket, made friends with youngsters, whom he would then brainwash.

Intelligence sources revealed that Rehman used to interact with anti-Indian organisations in Pakistan through e-mail. It is learnt Rehman had 10 different e-mail IDs in his name. Police who were studying his e-mail got information that Rehman sent photographs of major constructions like Nagarjunasagar Dam to Pakistan.

They suspect terrorist bodies must have instructed Rehman to carry out blasts at major constructions and sensitive installations and institutions in the country. There were reports that Karnataka police took Rehman to Nalgonda and to Nagarjunasagar dam.
