Slippery Indian Mujahideen leader Yasin Bhatkal arrested, to be brought to Delhi.
Nerw Delhi | 29 Aug 2013 :: Suspected terror mastermind and top Indian Mujahideen leader Yasin Bhatkal was nabbed from the Indo-Nepal border on Wednesday night, apparently giving India a bigger catch than Lashkar-e-Taiba bomb maker Abdul Karim Tunda this month.
Bhatkal, wanted in around 40 blast cases and carrying a reward of Rs. 35 lakh, is the biggest IM leader ever arrested and security agencies are hopeful of gaining crucial information on the outfit that was designated a terrorist group in 2010.
On the run for over five years in several countries including Nepal, Bangladesh and Pakistan, Bhatkal (30) was held along with his associate Asadullah Akhtar aka Haddi (26) while crossing into India at Raxaul Nahar Chowk (around 100 km from Patna) opposite Birgunj town of Nepal.(Courtesy:Hindustan Times)
