The agency is also probing into the train derailments in Kuneru in Andhra Pradesh and Bihar’s Ghorasahan case in which an IED was found near a rail track.

Earlier, the Bihar Police had arrested three suspected criminals named as Moti Paswan, Uma Shankar Patel, and Mukesh Yadav in connection with the case and had claimed that ISI had conspired to carry out a spate of train derailments in India.

Bihar Police, during interrogation, said that the three accused confessed to receiving Rs 3 lakh from Nepal citizen Brajesh Giri for planting the bomb on rail tracks at Ghorasahan in East Champaran district on 1st October 2016 to cause an accident. But the tragedy was averted. Brajesh Giri is allegedly connected with the ISI.
