National Investigation Agency (NIA) officers continued their field investigation for the second day on Monday, in the Coimbatore car blast case.

NIA sleuths took the five accused men — Muhammad Azharudheen, Afsar Khan, Firoz Ismail, Umar Faaruq, and Ferose Khan, who were arrested for their alleged links to the October 23 car blast, to Anbu Nagar, G.M. Nagar, and near a shopping mall for the investigation.

On Sunday, the officials took them to various places for investigation. So far, nine persons have been arrested in the case of blast near the Sangameswarar temple, in which Jamesha Mubin, the suspected mastermind, was killed.
