"On January 11, a joint action of the district police and the Central Crime Branch had questioned Moulvi Sadahatullah and Ayub Khan of this mosque for briefly sheltering some suspects. Sadahaullah was even taken to Bengaluru for further interrogation before being sent back. Since Gundlupet is at the border between Tamil Nadu and Kerala, there is a possibility that terror suspects could freely use this town en route for any kind of terror activities or to disturb peace," the police directive said.

Police have warned Sadahatullah and Khan that they would take legal action against them if any link to illegal activity is established with them, the report added.
