New Delhi: Delhi Police on Wednesday claimed to have smashed a pan-India terror module with the arrest of six suspected Indian Mujahideen operatives, including a Pakistani, allegedly involved in blasts in Pune, Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore and Delhi’s Jama Masjid.

A seventh person Ahmad Siddi Bappa alias Imran, believed to be the “main man” who was allegedly providing finance and other logistics besides coordinating various modules, is on the run, police sources said. Imran had allegedly planted the bomb in a car outside Delhi’s Jama Masjid on September 19, 2010, the sources said.

Police smashed an “Indian Mujahideen terrorist module suspected to be involved in Pune German Backery blast, Chinnaswamy stadium blast and Jama Masjid firing and blast in a car with the help of central intelligence agencies,” a Delhi Police statement said. The arrested have been identified as Pakistani national Mohd Adil, Mohd Qateel Siddique, Mohd Irshad Khan, Gauhar Aziz Khomani, Gayur Ahmad Jamali and Abdur Rehman.

“The arrests came following a coordinated action with central agencies and police forces in West Bengal, Tamil Nadu and Bihar,” a senior police official said. Two AK-47 rifles along with 50 cartridges, one 9mm pistol along with 14 live cartridges, 1.4 Kgs of black explosive material, 3.2 kgs of white explosive material, 350 gms granular off white explosive material, 5 detonators and fake Indian currency notes of the face value of Rs.2 lakh along with other incriminating material were recovered from the six arrested, he said.

The first to be arrested was Siddiqui (27) from near Anand Vihar Bus Terminal on November 22. A 9mm loaded pistol along with 14 live cartridges besides fake Indian currency were seized from him. Sources said he along with Adil were allegedly involved in the Jama Masjid incident.

“Two fake passports, one forged identity card of National Cadet Corps and one fake driving licence in the name of Vivek Mishra were recovered,” the official said.

The statement said Siddiqui’s interrogation led to the revelation that an Indian Mujahideen terrorist module was led by Bappa alias Shahrukh alias Yashin Ahmad alias Imran alias Asif of Bhatkal in Karnataka.

On November 23, Khomani (31) was apprehended from Delhi. His interrogation led to raids in in Madhubani, Bihar and the next day, Jamali (21) was arrested. On November 25, Adil (40), who hails from Karachi, was apprehended from Madhubani. (PTI)
