The NIA team that quizzed a Somalian and a Hyderabad resident in East Champaran on Monday did not get any substantive lead on Hyderabad blasts. The sleuths did not take them on remand and left Motihari after getting convinced that it was not the foreign national that the agency had been looking for.
The East Champaran police had arrested Somalian Abdullah Omar Makrani and Hyderabad resident Mohammed Abdul Alam last week at Raxual when they entered Bihar from Nepal. While Makrani was arrested for not carrying valid travel documents, the Hyderabad resident was arrested for assisting him.
East Champaran SP Ganesh Kumar confirmed the interrogation of the two by NIA team. The district police, however, is not taking any chances and will quiz them further. Makrani did not get Indian visa and so he got Nepal visa and tried to sneak in.
