B'luru blast: Escaped SIMI members resided in Dharwad for 10 months
The key question is that these persons who have been on the run for over a year and half managed to stay in Karnataka for ten months without anyone getting a wind of them. What prevented the MP ATS from releasing their pictures to all police stations?
The police part of the probe informed Oneindia that they are questioning the owner of the house where these persons were staying. However it has been found that the owner of the house Shivaji Rao Kulkarni had no idea as to who these persons were as they had produced fake documents and taken up the house on rent.
No suspicious behaviour
The five members of the SIMI stayed in Dharwad, North Karnataka for almost ten months and none had an idea of who they were or what they were up to. Those who had seen them have told the police that they did not interfere with anyone and went about their work. There was no suspicious activity on their part is what the police said.
Late as usual
These youth who broke out of the Khandwa jail almost a year and half back have been on the run ever since. The question is why were the photographs of these persons not released.
These were not first timers and they were in fact in jail for an offence which means the Madhya Pradesh police had access to the pictures. Even after they escaped their pictures were not sent to all police stations.
None in the Karnataka police had their pictures and in fact after the Church Street blast, they asked the MP police to send fresh pictures. Their role was found in the Chennai and Pune blasts and despite this no pictures were released.
Had the pictures been released to every police station, there is every chance that they would have been nabbed in Dharwad where they stayed on for ten months.
