Indian police arrest two in Tamil Nadu over Easter Sunday attacks

The National Investigation Agency of India (NIA) carried out raids in Thanjavur and Tiruchirapalli this week, as they detained two men over suspected links to the Easter Sunday bomb attacks in Colombo and Batticaloa that killed hundreds of people.

The two men are reportedly linked to accomplices of Zahran Hashim, the alleged mastermind behind the Easter bombing attacks.

The NIA’s actions follow the arrest of Mohammed Azarudheen and Shiek Hidayathulla on June 12 and cases being registered against six persons on May 30 from Coimbatore.

An NIA spokesman stated that their actions had been as a result of searches across social media platforms.
