Mangaluru: As the National Investigating Agency (NIA) arrested a terror suspect from his residence in Permude on Friday morning, reports of a possible bomb scare were making rounds in the city.

Rubbishing all the claims, Mangaluru City Police Commissioner M Chandra Sekhar informed media that things are very much in control and there is no need to panic whatsoever. Earlier this morning, the Commissioner was informed that there was a claim that a bomb was being planted at a mall in the city. To add to this, police personnel were found with a canine squad at the Railway Station too.

Responding to this, the Commissioner said that bomb scare was just a hoax one and the canine squad’s probe in the Railway Station was a routine practice.

With regards to the arrested terror suspect Najmul Huda, Chandra Sekhar said that no details could be revealed at the moment as he was not yet interrogated.

He said that the entire case is being investigated by the NIA and the city police only assisted them in tracing the location and in providing man force to nab him.

As many as six suspects allegedly having links with the ISIS were nabbed from Karnataka this morning. According to credible media sources, these suspects were planning to attack Prime Minister Modi.

During the raid at Huda’s house at 2.30am today, it is learnt that he was found talking over the phone. As he saw the police, he threw the phone and tried to flee from the spot. As the backdoor was locked from outside by the police and the house was sealed from all the sides, he could not escape. Later, his phone was found on a lower shelf in the kitchen. Six photographs of PM Modi in different poses, a laptop, five mobile phones, two pen drives and a few DVDs were also recovered from the house.

Huda’s father Saiful Huda told media that according to the police, his son was arrested as he shared a post on Facebook pertaining to the ISIS. He claimed that the police did not find anything suspicious from Huda adding that his son is innocent.

In the morning, Huda’s sister had informed media that he was active on social media and frequently used to share post relating to the ISIS.
