Two days after the car blast in Malappuram Collectorate premises in Kerala investigative officers recovered a pen drive, a box from the blast site. The pen drive contained photos of PM Narendra Modi which indicated that he is on the hit list of the terror group.
On November 1, a bomb exploded under a car which was parked near the Judicial First Class Magistrate Court within the Civil Station compound.
The investigating agencies suspected that Tamil Nadu based terror group “Al-Ummah” was behind the attack as the outfit came into existence after the demolition of Babri Masjid in 1992.
The officers also got a threat letter, warning of another blast and revenging the murder of Dadri mob lynching victim Mohammed Akhlaq.
Apart from Modi’s photos the pen drive also contained videos of Babri Masjid demolition, Gujarat riots, Photos of Mumbai blast convict Yakub Menon and Akhlaq.
The pen drive also comprised a message that the ‘Base Movement’, another name for Al Ummah which was banned after the 1998 Coimbatore blast will carry out more such blasts on courts in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and also in Red Fort and the Parliament.
The outfit tried to kill BJP leader LK Advani in 1998 blast. The same terror group carried out low-intensity blast in Mysore, Kollam, Chittur and at that time they had issued similar threats.
Also, the same kind of box like the one found in Malappuram was earlier recovered from Nellore blast site in September.
Three southern states in past three months witnessed similar LED blasts, fortunately, there were no casualties.
The first blast took place in Chittoor of Andhra Pradesh in April on the premises of a local court compound. The second occurred in June in Kollam in Kerala. Then a similar blast took place in Mysore in Karnataka in August. In September the same kind of blast occurred in the parking lot of Nellore district court of Andhra Pradesh.
