The suspected Pakistan-trained militant, who was arrested from Bangalore outskirts, had visited Infosys and Wipro to find out the security arrangements there for a possible terror strike as per instructions of top insurgents in Pakistan with alleged Lashkar-e-Tayiba links, his questioning revealed.

Police recovered 1 AK-56 rifle, 200 rounds of ammunition, 5 hand grenades, 2 magazines of AK-56 and 1 charger for satellite phone from his rented house at Ranipet in Bellary district, City Police Commissioner Neelam Achyut Rao said.

Rao said the 34-year-old terrorist Bilal Ahmed Kota alias Imran Jalal alias Salim, was asked by his "bosses" (top insurgents in Pakistan with alleged LeT links) to visit the offices of Wipro and Infosys and Bangalore airport to find out the security arragements at these places, and to report back.
