Bengaluru: A suspected Jamat-Ul-Mujahideen militant arrested by National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday admitted that he was involved in planting two bombs in Ramanagaram area, following which police officers rushed to the spot and successfully defused the explosives.

The NIA had arrested Habibur Rehman from Doddaballapur on the outskirts of Bengaluru on Tuesday. Based on information provided by Rehman, the investigating agencies in Kolkata and Bengaluru along with local police searched and found the bombs concealed in a stormwater drain at Tipunagar in Ramanagar district.

A bomb disposal squad accompanied them, police said, adding that the bombs were defused soon. Police officers believe that Rehman's associates might be on a few more mission in other parts of the state.

Ramanagaram police along with the NIA and Internal Security Division are conducting searches across the city. Bomb squad, dog squad and other investigation agencies are also active on the spot to apprehend five accused.

Rehman, who was wanted in Burdwan blast in West Bengal and Bodhgaya blast, was among the eight suspects police was on a lookout for. Three were arrested earlier, while Rehman became the fourth arrest.
