Bengaluru Rameshwaram Cafe blast case: NIA detains BJP worker

A Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) worker was detained on Friday for alleged involvement in the Bengaluru Rameshwaram Cafe blast case.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) detained Sai Prasad, a BJP worker, in connection with the Rameshwaram Cafe blast, according to Asianet News.

Prasad was allegedly named by two mobile shop workers, who were questioned by the NIA last week. He was detained from Thirthahalli in the Shivamogga district of Karnataka.

Sai Prasad allegedly had contacts with suspects in Theerthahalli and Chikkamagaluru. The central agency had earlier conducted raids on the residences of two youths and a mobile shop owner in Theerthahalli.

The NIA, which took over the case on March 3, said on Friday that the agency identified the accused person who carried out the IED blast as one Mussavir Hussain Shazib and co-conspirator as Abdul Matheen Taahaa. They both are residents of Thirthahalli in Shivamogga district.
