Hyderabad, Feb 24 (UNI) With the arrest of Kerala-based engineer and SIMI activists Yahya Khan and Riazuddin Nasir, suspected bomb planters in one of the August 25 twin blasts in Andhra Pradesh, recently from Karnataka had raised questions on the links between the suspected terrorists in these three states.
According to police sources here, the activists and sympathisers of the terrorist organisation had established a 'strong network' to coordinate among themselves in resorting to violent activities, including the recruitment of youth in their organisation.
At present, Harkat-Ul-Jihadi Islami (HUJI) and Lashkar-e Toiba (LeT) organisations were active in South India, recruiting the activists and procuring explosive materials.
The terror organisations were also taking assistance from engineers and IT professionals to prepare explosive devices, the sources added.
Not ruling out the possibility of terrorist plots to trigger blasts at strategic places like defence organisations, government head offices and in dense public places, the sources said the intelligence orgnisations of Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka were exchanging the information available on the movements of terrorists.
