BANGALORE: Bangalore Police Commissioner Ajai Kumar Singh on Sunday said investigation of the attack on the Indian Institute of Science campus here on December 28 was on the right track and the culprits will be caught shortly.

He told The Hindu that "I am satisfied with the way the investigation is being carried out. We have enough clues about the culprits. They will be caught soon," he said. The investigating team is led by a Deputy Inspector-General and comprises a Deputy Commissioner, an Assistant Commissioner and five inspectors.

He said the police team led by Deputy Commissioner (Crime) M.D. Basavannavar, which has gone to Hyderabad, is yet to return.

The team was sent after the Hyderabad police arrested three suspected terrorists. "We have not got any specific information from the Hyderabad police about the involvement of any terrorist group," he said.

The city police was getting inputs from other States. It was also in touch with the Central Intelligence units, he said even as there were reports from Delhi that the Central security agencies had established links between the mastermind of the attack and the Pakistan-based militant group, Lashkar-e-Taiba.

Denying reports of detaining and arresting people in this connection, he requested people not to pay attention to rumours.

He also asked the police to look for persons bearing resemblance to the computer-generated portrait of the suspect involved in the attack.
