BANGALORE (AFP) - Police in the southern Indian city of Bangalore said on Monday they had arrested a doctor over an alleged plot by the militants to assassinate prominent politicians. Nayeem Siddiqui was detained late on Sunday in Davangere, 250 kilometres from Bangalore, in the latest of more than a dozen arrests after police said they had foiled the alleged assassination plan. Siddiqui and the other suspects have been held under anti-terrorism laws for suspected links to the banned group, which is blamed for the 2008 Mumbai attacks. “During questioning the police learnt that Siddiqui was providing logistic and financial support to the (other) accused,” Bangalore police commissioner Jyotiprakash Mirji told AFP.
