Mysuru: The suspect in the cooker bomb blast in an autorickshaw in Mangaluru was living rented house under Metagalli police station limits in Mysuru.

Mysuru police, on Sunday, detained several individuals for investigation after the fact came to light, sources said.

It is gathered that the suspect had rented a house on Sanjeevini Road in Loknayaka Nagar of Mysuru.

Mangalamma, the owner of the rented house where the terror suspect had lived, was interrogated by the police who collected preliminary information about the accused.

It is learned that the suspect lived using an alias and called identified himself as Prem from Hubballi. He had submitted an Aadhaar card of a man from Hubballi who had lost it several months ago. The original owner of the Aadhaar card has been traced in Hubballi and he has no connection with the suspect.

Sources said the house owner was interrogated about the appearance of the tenant and also about his movements during his stay.

Meanwhile, police are continuing their efforts to establish the real identity of the suspect who has been prima facie identified as Mohammed Shariq from Thirthahalli in Shivamogga. A police team is escorting Shariq’s family to Mangaluru to verify his identity.

Inquiry at Udakamandalam (Ooty)

Police have also interrogated a 40-year-old man in Tamil Nadu’s Udakamandalam after the SIM card used by the suspect was found to be registered in his name. It is learned that the accused had bought the SIM card by producing an Aadhaar card of Surendran of Kundasappai village. It is unclear if Surendran had helped the suspect buy the SIM card or if his Aadhaar card was misused without his knowledge. A police investigation is underway in this regard.
