A Kerala police officer and postman were arrested for allegedly helping a suspected Pakistani terrorist procure an Indian passport, a top police officer said on Monday.
Crime Detachment Assistant Commissioner V Chandran said Assistant Sub-Inspector Mohammedali of Arikkode Police station and postman Abdul Latheef of Kavannur post office, both in Malappuram district, were arrested on Sunday night for allegedly helping Al-Badr terrorist Mohammad Fahd procure a passport.
Chandran, who was heading the team probing Fahd's alleged links in Kozhikode and neighbouring Malappuram said interrogation was on to find out whether the ASI helped the terrorists without properly verifying information given in the application.
Police were also investigating the role of the postman, who allegedly delivered the passport to Fahd on an address that was not mentioned in the document, he said.
Fahd, along with another suspected terrorist, was arrested in Mysore on October 26 while allegedly plotting an attack on the Vikas Soudha building in Bangalore.
