Youths who tried to pass diabetes pills to Bengaluru blasts accused held

An alert escort police nabbed a 24-year-old youth and his associate who were trying to hand over a packet of diabetes pills to an accused in the Bengaluru serial bomb blast case at a court hall complex on Monday.

The youth, Sharath Kumar, a resident of RR Nagar, and his associate, Sanjay, around 25-years old, have been handed over to Halasuru Gate police for further investigation.

Reserve police sub-inspector Maruthi S E led the escort police party to bring in the 19 accused in Bengaluru serial blasts case from Parappa Agarahara Central Prisons to a special court.

While the accused were waiting for their turn outside the court hall, Kumar and Sanjay approached Abdul Khader, accused number 29 in the case, posing as visitors and handed over a packet to him.

The escort police, who was observing this, immediately nabbed Kumar and Sanjay and recovered the packet from Khader.

Further probe revealed that there were around 50 tablets of GEMER2, a medicine used by diabetic patients.

The pills have been sent to the Forensic Science Laboratory for analysing the contents.

The accused is involved in a terrorist act and has been kept under high-security cover. The police are also probing Kumar's antecedents.
