Karnataka Police to seek Yasin's custody

Bangalore, Aug 29, 2013 (PTI)
Karnataka police will seek the custody of Indian Mujahideen co-founder Yasin Bhatkal, who was arrested from the Indo-Nepal border in north Bihar, for his alleged role in terror attacks in Bangalore, a top police official said today.

"We will seek Yasin's custody for interrogating him on his role in several terror attacks in Bangalore. However, it will take time for us to get him here," Karnataka DGP Lalrokhuma Pachau told PTI here.

Yasin, who hails from Bhatkal in Karnataka, is wanted in connection with a string of terror attacks in Ahmedabad, Surat, Bangalore, Pune, Delhi and Hyderabad. His arrest last night, more than five years after he was on the run, is considered a prize catch.

Pachau said Karnataka Police had been on the lookout for the Indian Mujaheedin leader and were sharing information with security agencies including NIA and Intelligence.

"The arrest of Yasin is a good breakthrough for the nation and the police as well," he said.
Pachau also said Karnataka Police would trace the source of income for carrying out terrorist activities which will help them dismantle terror networks in the state.
