BANGALORE: Following the arrest of engineer Yahya Khan, police are now on the lookout for other SIMI activists who were part of the terror network.
Police sources said Yahya was one of the brains behind the planning carried out by Mohammed Ghouse alias Riyazuddin Nasir.
Though Yahya is not involved in any operations, police have to establish if he had financed the other terror suspects.
DGP (CoD) Ajai Kumar Singh said Yahya had revealed names of his associates and police are investigating them. ‘‘The city police will interrogate him to establish his link, if any, to the IISc attack.
Yahya had held meetings in Belgaum and Dharwad, besides Hubli and Goa. Six terror suspects have been arrested. We are looking for the others linked to them.
There are several big names,’’ he said. Yahya had gone on a Haj pilgrimage last year and was in Saudi Arabia for a month. It has to be established if he had visited any other place before returning to Bangalore.
