Bengaluru: The Karnataka Police have said that Habib Mia - an alleged conspirator in the sensational 2005 Indian Institute of Science shooting in which an IIT Professor was shot dead - had no direct role in the attack.

A senior official of the city crime branch said Habib helped Shahabuddin escape to Bangladesh. And as of now, that's all they know. "After his interrogation, we couldn't get much from him. His role was limited to helping Shahabuddin flee to Bangladesh. And He got 800 rupees for the job".

A resident of Tripura, Habib had allegedly helped Noorullah Khan alias Shahabuddin flee, whom the police consider as the mastermind in this case. Shahabuddin, a Bengaluru resident, is learnt to have escaped from Bangladesh to Pakistan now.

Habib was arrested in a joint operation by the Bengaluru ATS crime branch, and Tripura police. Tripura police, after receiving a tip-off, alerted the Bengaluru ATS, leading to Habib's arrest.

Initially, the police suspected he had a major role to play in one of the most sensational terror attacks as this was the first time an AK-47 was used in a crime in Bengaluru.

Later, police identified the attackers as belonging to a cell of Lashkar-e-Toiba. So far six people have been convicted in the case. The police are on the lookout for several others.
