Arin Khan, alias Junaid, who was on the police’s most wanted list since long, had escaped from Badla House. In fact, the police had also announced a reward amount of Rs 15 lakh on Junaid’s head.
Allegedly involved in all the major blasts conducted by the Indian Mujahideen, Junaid, it is learnt, was hiding at an isolated location and was trying to revive the Indian Mujahideed network. The arrest is being looked at as a major breakthrough in countering the IM network within the country. A further briefing on the arrest is expected to take place on Wednesday evening. The breakthrough also comes within days after the Delhi Police, on January 23, revealed that Abdul Subhan Qureshi, the founder of Indian Mujahideen, had recced the offices of BJP office holders in New Delhi and Gujarat.
The police had also thrown light on the activities of the group to revive its functioning in the country.
