Rameshwaram Cafe blast case: NIA arrests key conspirator after multiple raids

Rameshwaram Cafe blast case: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has apprehended a key conspirator in the Rameshwaram Cafe blast case, marking a significant breakthrough in the investigation.

Muzammil Shareef, the main conspirator, was arrested on Wednesday after being identified as a co-conspirator when NIA teams conducted raids at 18 locations, including 12 in Karnataka, five in Tamil Nadu, and one in Uttar Pradesh.


The NIA, which took over the case on March 3, had already identified the main culprit as Mussavir Shazeeb Hussain, who carried out the blast. It also named another conspirator, Abdul Matheen Taha, who is wanted by the agency in other investigations. Both men are on the run.

According to NIA investigations, Muzammil Shareef gave logistic support to the other two identified accused in the case, which involved an IED explosion at the Cafe on ITPL Road in Brookefield, Bengaluru, on March 1.

Several customers and hotel employees suffered injuries, some critically, in the blast, which caused significant damage to the property.

According to the agency, "the raids were conducted today at the houses of all these three accused, as well as the residential premises and shops of other suspects."

NIA seized various digital devices and cash during the searches. "Efforts are on to nab the absconding accused and unearth the larger conspiracy behind the blast."
