Security agencies probing the attack on Indian Institute of Sciencesin Bangalore do not rule out such strikes in Mangalore in Karnataka and some other cities in adjacent Andhra Pradesh.

According to sources in intelligence agencies, Mangalore and other cities in Andhra Pradesh were turning as hubs of Lashkar-e-Tayiba activities and the sleuths feared activation of some more "sleeping cells" of the Pakistan-based militant outfitto carry out attacks of such nature.

Security officials probing the Bangalore attack have found the imprint of LeT in it and three persons have been detained in this connection.

The three detained persons are believed to have links with LeT and also follow the Al Hadees sect of Islam, the same followed by LeT.

They were expected to throw some light on the incident, including the people behind the conspiracy, informed sources said.

According to the investigations so far, the LeT had put inservice its activists who had been trained in Bangladesh and Saudi Arabia to carry out the attack, which left an emeritus professor of Delhi Indian Institute of Technology M C Puri dead and four injured.
