Saifi, Resident of Shaheen Bagh ‘conspired’ to Attack Kerala Train to Spread Terror


Fresh reports have claimed that April 2 Kerala train incident – which caused death of three people, including a minor and nine other suffered burn injuries – was a planned conspiracy by a group with ‘possible terror link.’

As reported by The Print, prime accused, Sharukh Saifi, who also suffered burn injuries in the attack, had purchased 4 litres of petrol from a petrol pump in Palakkad – a kilometres away from the railway station – on the morning of April 2. He was also carrying the petrol with him in two bottles.

“This was a planned conspiracy to carry out an attack to spread terror. As per plan Saifi left from Delhi on a train to Kerala and then spent over 12 hours in Palakkad arranging logistics, including the petrol that he used in the attack,” the source added.

The sources have also informed that Saifi was getting local help, as well to execute his plan, and he was in touch with person in Kerala and had spoken to him, three days before the attack.

The reports further informed that 27-year-old Saifi, resident of Shaheen Bagh in Delhi, was arrested by the Anti-Terrorism Squad of Maharashtra police and Central Intelligence last week was taken to Kozhikode.

He has been charged with murder. The National Investigation Agency is likely to take over the case to investigate the terror links.
