The Chennai Police today arrested two suspected terrorists believed to be involved in serial bombings in Bangalore and Ahmedabad during the weekend. The suspects, Qazi Rahim, 31, and K Abdul Kader, 27, were named by Sheikh Abdul Ghaffoor, who was arrested on Sunday in Tirunelveli, 600 kilometres from Chennai. Ghafoor was planning 'blasts' in Tamil Nadu and other parts of India on Independence Day, police officials said. According to the officials, on initial interrogation Ghafoor revealed that he was an operative of a terrorist ring that calls itself 'believers in one god', whose kingpin is said to be Islamabad-trained P Ali Abdullah, arrested in 2003 and lodged in high security Puzhal prison. Police officials reckon that this 'group' had worked out logistics of the serial blasts in Bangalore and Ahmedabad. The back-to-back synchronised bomb blasts hit the cities on Friday and Saturday. The attacks claimed the lives of 46 people and left over 150 injured.
