HYDERABAD: Police searched three madrasas in Hyderabad as part of investigations into recent bombings that killed at least 43 people, prompting Muslim leaders to complain of discrimination on Friday.

Investigators visited Darul Uloom Hyderabad, a prominent madrasas, in the early hours of Thursday in search of a student named Mujeeb Abdul Rahman, said police official C. H. Srinivas.

No student of that name is enrolled there, the school's secretary Raheemuddin Ansar said, adding that the officers also asked if the school has any foreign students.

"Where was the need for the police to come to the madrasa late in the night when all the students were asleep?" Ansar said. "It created unnecessary panic and fear among the residents."

Police have not released any information about Rahman or any other suspects in the two blasts, which exploded minutes apart in crowded areas in Hyderabad on August 25, killing at least 43 people and injuring dozens more.

Police have blamed Islamic militants based in Pakistan and Bangladesh for the bombs, saying the insurgents hope to create communal tensions.

Investigators visited two other madrasas on Thursday, including one school for girls, to ask about the establishments' finances and the number of students enrolled, according to Mufti Merajuddin Abrar and Moulana Maqbool Hashimi, officials at the schools.

Muslim leaders complained about the raids to Chief Minister Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy and asked him to ensure the schools and Muslim community are treated with respect or "it will create anger and distrust," said Moulana Hameeduddin Aaquil Hussami, president of Deeni Madaris Board
