Bangalore, Feb 13 (UNI) The Corps of Detectives (CoD) of the Karnataka police subjected suspected Lashkar-e-Toiba militant Riyazuddin Naser alias Mohammad Ghouse to narco analyses test for the second time at a city hospital today.

CoD Inspector General of Police Ajay Kumar Singh said the second test was conducted as the questioning of the arrested during the first test, a few day's ago, had remained inconclusive.

"Today's test was a success and we could bring out many things about his activities in the state," he said without elaborating.

Riyazuddin, belonging to Hyderabad, along with Asadullah Abubaker of Hospet in the state, were arrested by Davangere police on January 11 on charges of possessing two wheelers stolen from Goa. After questioning it was learnt that they were suspected to have links with Pakistan-based terror outfit LeT.

Following their information police later arrested a final year medicine students -- Mohammad Asif and Mirza Beig in Hubli and Gulbarga, respectively.

City Police Commissioner N Achyuta Rao said that Additional Commissioner Gopal B Hosur had left for Lucknow today to join the Karnataka police team to question Sabbauddin, one of the six terror suspects arrested in UP last week.

Sabbauddin, a suspected LeT member, had revealed to the UP police that he was one among the two who attacked IISc in December 2005 resulting in killing of IIT Delhi professor M K Puri.

Pakistan based terrorist Abu Hamza was said to have sprayed bullets at a group of Scientists at the IISc on the fateful day in the city. He was believed to have fled back to Pakistan after the attack.
