The receptionist at the guest house, Ashraf Ali told ANI that both Bengaluru Rameshwaram Cafe blast accused paid in cash and were using their regional language to communicate with each other.

“They came on 25th March and showed their Identity cards, and we provided them a room. Bengaluru Rameshwaram Cafe accused checked out from the Hotel on 28th March" Ali said. 

When the officials from the National Investigation Agency (NIA) arrived at the guest house, the receptionist said, they went through the entry register and began an investigation. 

"We do not provide food inside the Hotel, so both of them used to go out to have food. They paid in cash and booked only one room. Both of them used their regional language to communicate with each other," Ali added. 

NIA gets 10-day custody of Rameshwaram Cafe blast accused

A special NIA court on Saturday granted the national probing-agency 10 days custody of two Rameshwaram Cafe blast case accused for further investigation.
