The Indian NIA has summoned four more people to appear for an enquiry in connection with the Sri Lankan blast.

According to a source, NIA officials, based on a tip off, started serial investigations, raided a few houses in Coimbatore and confiscated 29 mobile phone sim cards, 300 bullets used for air-guns, six memory cards and ten pen drives along with vital information and pamphlets propagating the ideologies of ISIS, the Deccan Chronicle reported.

Three youths were recently arrested by Podanur police under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act and are being investigated.

The prime alleged offender Mohamed Azarudheen is involved in recruiting youths for ISIS from Tamil Nadu and Kerala and conspired for a massive explosion along with an ISIS terrorist identified as Riyas Abubaker from Kasaragod in Kerala. Azarudheen was remanded by the NIA special court at Kochi.

Meanwhile, NIA officials have summoned Feroz Khan, Mubheen and Janafar Ali from Coimbatore, asking them to appear before the NIA office at Kochin on Friday for an enquiry, suspecting them to have connections with the banned terrorist movement Islamic state of Iraq and Syria. Umar Farooq was asked to appear before the NIA at its Race course office in Coimbatore.
