Bengaluru: The city police on Thursday night brought two suspects from Patna to the city in connection with the Church Street blast on December 28 last year.
The police acquired a body warrant for Haidar Ali and his associate Umar Siddiqui, both suspects in jail for their alleged role in the serial blasts at the Hunkar rally of Narendra Modi in Patna in October 2013.
Additional Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Alok Kumar, who is heading the Special Investigation Team that is probing the case, said: “CCTV footage and call records have yielded little results,” he said. Explosives used in the Hunkar rally blasts and the Bodh Gaya blasts in Bihar were similar to those used in the Church Street blast. This has led the city police to bring the two suspects to the city and grill them for any information that may provide a lead.
The two suspects, however, were not involved as they were in NIA custody, the day of the Church Street blast.
