Shillong, Sep 28: Sleuths of the central intelligence agencies have started to draw the linkages of Mominul Haque, who sent an email threat to kill BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate L K Advani, with Indian Mujahideen (IM).

Haque was arrested on Thursday night after he confessed of having posted an email threat to two local dailies here to eliminate Mr Advani during his visit to Shillong tomorrow, as part of his nationwide 'Vijay Sankalp Yatra'.

''We are in the process of drawing his (Haque) confessions and to find out if he has any links with the Indian Mujahideen or any jihadi groups,'' State Director General of Police B K Dey Sawian told the sources here.

Haque, a law student and tech-savvy, comes from a middle class family, but has travelled abroad on several occasions, apart from visiting many other states in the country.

''Haque has traveled to Dubai, Bangladesh Bahrain and other Middle East countries on several occasions although he hails from a middle class family,'' intelligence officials said.

Police have also seized his passport and other incriminating documents from residence at Laban, Howell road.

Not just travelling abroad, but the security agencies found that Haque made several calls to United States, Africa and other countries.

''His cell phone data revealed that he has been calling abroad and the last international call he made was almost for 300 minutes,'' the official added.

''We are investigating whether Haque received any arms training during his several travel aboard and his possible links with jihadi outfits,'' the official said.
