Hyderabad blasts: Cops probe info about one-man sleeper cells around Hyderabad
They had apparently built the network of former SIMI sympathisers. The police are now verifying the activities of a couple of former SIMI activists in East Godavari and Nalgonda in the past few weeks. Officials doubt that one of them could have suggested the names of persons who could be recruited to provide local support for Dilsukhnagar bombing to Maqbool.
Unlike conventional terror cells that comprise of individuals with assigned roles, the members of one-man sleeper cells are not hardcore terrorists but youths often indoctrinated and kept on standby.
An official said they have regular jobs and lead normal lives with their families. But are often reminded by their handlers about their duty. Since they work alone, their chance of getting caught is minimum. Investigators believe such individuals could have provided bicycles to the bombers.
