India’s National Investigation Agency has conducted raids at some places in Kashmir to locate a suspect in connection with March 7 Bhopal- Ujjain train blast, The Indian Express reported.

The report said, “NIA sources said teams had raided some places in Kashmir in an attempt to trace a person, but had so far not located him.”

The raids have come following the interrogation of three men arrested in connection with the blast. NIA said that the arrested men have had alleged contacts with an “18 year old” youth who works for ISIS.

The report reveals the names of two men as Atif Muzzafar and Syed Mir Hussain.

NIA sources revealed that in February 2016, when Atif was exploring possibilities to cross into Pakistan, he had gone to Srinagar and stayed in Hotel Manora Palace near the Dal Lake. “He used a copy of his passport as ID proof for staying in the hotel. He stayed there for five days and visited Gulmarg, exploring possibilities to cross into Pakistan. It was during this visit that he met this 18-year-old Kashmiri youth who subsequently remained in touch with Atif over the messaging service Telegram,” the report quoting NIA source said.
