Madurai: Two more members of an alleged terror group were arrested from Tamil Nadu in connection with a bomb blast in a court complex in Malappuram in Kerala last year, police said on Monday.
Abubacker and Abdur Rahman belonging to the 'Base Movement' were arrested from Madurai Sunday night, they said.
They were detained based on interrogation of five other members of the little-known movement detained by the National Investigation Agency in November last year in Madurai in connection with low-intensity blasts in court complexes including in Malappuram and Kollam in Kerala and Chitoor in Andhra Pradesh.
A low-intensity Improvised Explosive Device had gone off in a car parked in Malappuram Judicial Magistrate Court complex on November 1, 2016. No one was injured in the incident.
Police had then recovered pamphlets from the scene which linked the attack to 'Base Movement', which has been suspected to have been involved in low intensity blasts in various court complexes.
