Hindu, 5 May 2014

The next level of investigation into the May 1 twin blasts in the Bangalore-Guwahati Express at the Chennai Central railway station has opened up a huge logistical dimension in tracking the calls made by suspects from their mobile phones en route the 358-km journey from the ‘Garden City’ to Chennai Central.The act of terror claimed the life of a woman passenger and injured 14 others.The Tamil Nadu CB-CID’s massive task, as part of the multi-level investigation into the twin blasts, involves analysing hundreds of mobile phone records that emanated along the route, aided by signals from the mobile towers of various service providers alongside important stations.According to police sources, special technical teams are looking for suspicious incoming/outgoing numbers along the Bangalore-Jolarpet-Katpadi-Arakkonam and Chennai Central stretch from the night of April 30 (before the train had left Karnataka’s capital) till the next morning when the blasts occurred.
