New Delhi. NIA on Tuesday cracked down on multiple locations in four states as part of its efforts to uncover the entire conspiracy behind the Rameshwaram Café Blast Case and to identify the other conspirators involved in handling the accused from abroad.

In a coordinated action, NIA teams searched 11 locations in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, and Andhra Pradesh. Extensive searches were conducted at the premises linked with 11 suspects in the case, in which an IED explosion at the café on ITPL Road, Brookefield in Bengaluru, had left several customers and staff members injured. The attack, which took place on 1st March 2024, had also caused massive damage to property.

The 11 suspects whose premises were searched today include individuals convicted in the 2012 LeT Conspiracy case of Bengaluru and Hubli Districts. The targeted searches led to the seizure of various digital devices and documents, which the NIA is examining exhaustively.

NIA had taken over the case from Karnataka State Police on 3rd March 2024, and had arrested two accused, Mussavir Hussain Shazib and Abdul Matheen Taha, from their hideout in Kolkata (West Bengal) on 12th April, after a nationwide hunt. The duo, both residents of Thirthahalli, Shivamogga district, were identified as the perpetrator and the mastermind, respectively, of the attack.
