Darbhanga railway station blast case: NIA arrests two LeT terrorists from Hyderabad

Hyderabad: National Investigation Agency (NIA) has arrested two alleged Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists from Hyderabad in connection with Darbhanga railway station blast case.

The arrested terrorists have been identified as Imran Malik alias Imran Khan and Mohd. Nasir Khan alias Nasir Malik both residents of Nampally, Hyderabad. NIA said they originally hail from the Shamli district of Uttar Pradesh. NIA took over the case on June 17. Darbhanga Police had registered a case after a blast rocked railway station in Muzaffarpur, Bihar.

The crime is related to a parcel bomb explosion at platform number 1 of Darbhanga Railway station. Investigation revealed that the parcel was booked at Secunderabad. It had arrived in Secunderabad- Darbhanga Express.

Preliminary interrogation of the accused has revealed a trans-national conspiracy was hatched by top operatives of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) to execute terror acts across India and cause large-scale damage to life and property.

"Acting under the directions of Pakistan based handlers of LeT, Mohd Nasir Khan, and his brother Imran Malik fabricated an incendiary IED and packed it in a parcel of cloth and booked the same in a long-distance train from Secunderabad to Darbhanga. This was aimed at causing an explosion and fire in a running passenger train resulting in huge loss of lives and property," NIA said.

According to the records, Mohd Nasir Khan had visited Pakistan in 2012 and received training from LeT in the fabrication of IED from locally available chemicals. He along with his brother Imran was in touch with Pakistan-based handlers of LeT over encrypted communication platforms.
