Mangaluru: It is learned that more than a thousand ‘Jihadi videos’ were found stored in the mobile phone of Mohammed Shariq, the prime accused in the Mangaluru autorickshaw blast case.


Shariq, who is said to have a fanatical mindset, had apparently prohibited his family members from watching entertainment programs on TV including movies. It is learned that he had insisted on reciting the name of “Allah”.

Sources said more than 55 GB of videos and photos, including videos of ISIS-related terrorist acts, were found on his mobile and pen drive. Obscene videos and Jehadi literature were also stored on the mobile.

Sources said that Shariq’s intention was to implement Sharia law in India.

No clue about Shariq’s accomplices 


Although a week has passed since the Cooker Bomb exploded in an autorickshaw, the police have not made much progress in the case. persons who helped Shariq and his handlers are still at large.

More 10 10 police teams are investigating the case. However, the inability to interrogate Shariq, who was seriously injured in the blast, has become a stumbling block.

Police meanwhile are putting together clues from the material carried by Shariq found at the blast scene and other evidence collected.
