The accused persons in the case had formed the Base Movement, in Tamil Nadu in January 2015 drawing inspiration from the ideology of Al Qaeda and its leader Osama bin Laden.

The Mysuru blast case was originally registered at Lakshmipuram Police Station, Mysuru against an unknown accused. Later NIA took over the case on orders of the Ministry of Home Affairs and carried out fresh investigations and re-registered the case.
