Kannur: State government has decided to refer to the National Investigation Agency the case connected with seizure of country bombs and weapons from a training camp conducted by Popular Front of India at Narath in Kannur district.
The case was being referred to the NIA in view of the case’s inter-state links, State Home Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan told reporters at Kanhangad near Kasargod Friday.
Information received from the phone details of the same accused found that he had made contacts with a relative of an accused taken into custody in connection with the April 17 Bangalore blast case, the police said.
A total of 21 activists of the PFI had been arrested in connection with the case and all of them were charged under the Unlawful Activities Preventions Act.
Police alleged that the weapons were collected and training camps organised for execution of some operation elsewhere in the State or some other part of the country.
The PFI leaders have refuted the allegations against the outfit holding that the case was fabricated by police and sought an independent inquiry into it.
