Sheikh Abdul Kaleem, an accused in the August 25 Hyderabad twin blasts case, who was subject to a second narco-analysis test on Friday said he had handed over five SIM cards to five Bangladeshi's who were in Hyderabad.

During the test which lasted almost three hours, Kaleem also said that he had provided shelter to another accused in case, Shoaib Jagirdar, and furnished fake documents in his name.

Kaleem also revealed the names of four other Bangladeshi nationals who had gained entry into Hyderabad at the time of the Mecca Masjid blasts.

The revelation by Kaleem may put the police in a spot of bother considering the fact that the information available with them states that Kaleem had allegedly secured 50 SIM cards.

The police may consider subjecting him to another test as they believe that more can be elicited out of him. The Andhra police have also launched a massive manhunt for the said five persons.

Kaleem is believed to be an associate of  alleged mastermind of the blasts Shahid Bilal. He had subject to a narco-analysis test two weeks back in which he is believed to given out important information relating to both the Mecca Masjid as well as the August 25 twin blasts in Hyderabad.

Meanwhile the Hyderabad police are investigating into the terror network allegedly created by Shahid Bilal who is suspected to be the brain behind the blasts.
The investigations are being conducted on the basis of the information they got from the narco tests. They are also banking heavily on the revelations made by Imran another accused who said that he was closely associated with Bilal.

Imran during the test had said that Bilal was in Hyderabad between 1994 and 2002 and had established terror modules. While Imran revealed that Bilal had masterminded the blasts he was unable to pin point as other names who were directly involved in the blasts.

Imran, an executive in a Bank is a native of Hyderabad and claimed that he had helped Bilal due to financial constraints. He also said that he had stored the RDX which were brought into Hyderabad and had helped several Bangladeshi nationals enter into Hyderabad.
