Army Commander: Lieutenant General Mahesh Senanayake says, some of the suicide bombers who carried out the country’s worst terror attacks on Easter Sunday had visited Kashmir and Kerala for “some sorts of training”, or to make “some more links” with other foreign outfits.
In an interview with the BBC last week, Lieutenant General Senanayake disclosed certain details on the movement of the suspects in the region, and also international links. He said, information is available that the terrorists visited Kashmir and Bangalore when they travelled to the Kerala State.
On the possible involvement of a foreign group, the Army chief said, by looking at the pattern of the operation and the places where the suspects had visited, there had to be some outside involvement of some leadership.
