During the preliminary information, it was found that Zahed was previously involved in several terror-related cases in Hyderabad. He was also involved in the suicide attack on the Hyderabad city police commissioner's task force office Begumpet in 2005.

Zahed was in touch with three ISI-LeT handlers - Farhatullah Ghouri alias FG, Siddique Bin Osman alias Rafique alias Abu Hamzala and Abdul Majeed alias Chotu.

The three ISI handlers belong to Hyderabad and are also wanted in several cases. They are now settled in Pakistan and working on the direction of ISI.

The city commissioner also said that they also radicalised local youth and carried out blasts in the city including near Sai Baba Temple, Dilsukhnagar in 2002, bus blast at Ghatkopar in Mumbai and Task Force office blast at Begumpet in 2005.

They also tried to carry out a blast near Ganesh Temple Secunderabad in 2004.

Zahed reportedly accepted during the interrogation that Farhatulla Ghori, Abu Hamzala and Majeed revived their contacts with him.
