According to the state police, the duo had been living here in the guise of migrant labourers and they were tracked according to the request of the military intelligence. The military intelligence asked us to track them and we held them in a joint operation today. Interrogation is going on and we can confirm about their Bodo links only after that, Kollam city police commissioner S Satheesh Bino told PTI. It is all up to the military intelligence. Our duty was only to support them to track the suspects and hand them over to them, he said.
However, he did not divulge any further details of the arrested. Sources said that both of them have been lodged in a police station here.
