NIA Special Court Bengaluru framed charges in Mysuru court blast case (August 2016) against all the 3 accused.
An explosion had taken place in the Mysuru court complex in August 2016. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) in May filed a charge sheet in the special NIA court here against Nainar Abbas Ali alias Appas Ali alias Library Abbas (28), M Samsun Karim Raja alias Karim alias Abdul Karim (23) and S Dawood Sulaiman (23).
The NIA had initially arrested three persons from Madurai on suspicion of them being involved in at least five court complex blast cases. Two more were arrested by the agency in Meloor in November last year. All accused are suspected to be part of Base Movement outfit. With the arrests, the NIA had claimed to have cracked five court blast cases.
The investigation revealed that the accused had carried out the Mysore court blast on August 1 last year as part of a "larger conspiracy" which included founding of the terrorist outfit Base Movement and carrying out various activities such as sending threatening letters to various jails, senior government functionaries, the Dinamalar's office and the French Consulate, and carrying out blasts at different court premises in South India, the NIA claimed.
The accused have been booked under stringent provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, the Indian Penal Code, the Explosives Substances Act and the Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act, the NIA said.
