The retired Jharkhand police officer has been identified as Mohammad Jallauddin. The suspect has been identified as Athar Parvez. According to police, while both have links with PFI, Jallauddin was earlier associated with the Students' Islamic Movement of India or SIMI. Parvez's younger brother was jailed in 2001-02 for alleged involvement in several bomb blast cases in Bihar

Phulwari Sharif Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Manish Kumar, said that the duo was imparting training in the use of swords and knives to locals and provoking them to carry out communal violence. 

During the course of the investigation, it emerged that a number of people from other states were visiting them in Patna. During their stay in the state capital, they would conceal their identity. 

Several incriminating documents linked to Islamic extremism were recovered from them, the officer further said, adding that Parvez was allegedly raising foreign funds to carry out anti-India activities and was in constant touch with members of several overseas organisations. Meanwhile, the Enforcement Directorate has been roped in to track the money trail.
