Bhatkal wanted in several bomb blast cases

New Delhi, Aug 29, 2013 (PTI):

Indian Mujahideen (IM) co-founder Yasin Bhatkal, arrested from the Indo-Nepal border in north Bihar, is wanted in several blast cases being probed by NIA and state police forces.

His name had come up in connection with the explosion outside Delhi High Court on September 7, 2011 in which 12 people were killed.

Thirty-year-old Bhatkal is wanted in 2010 Pune's German Bakery blast case in which 17 people-- including five foreigners-- were killed and 56 others injured.

He is one of the alleged key conspirators in the Jangli Maharaj road blast in Pune on August 1 last year. One person was injured in the blast.

Bhatkal is also wanted in the 2010 Chinnaswamy stadium blasts in Bangalore and July 2006 Mumbai train bombings.

The IM co-founder, who hails from Bhatkal in Karnataka, is also wanted in the Delhi serial blasts (2008), Ahmedabad blasts (2008) and Surat blast (2008). He is also allegedly involved in blasts in Jaipur (2008), Dashashwamedh Ghat in Varanasi (2010) and in Mumbai (2011).

Bhatkal is also a suspect in twin bomb blasts case at Dilshuknagar, Hyderabad early this year.

He is wanted by NIA and state police forces in several cases of terror activities and waging war against the country. NIA, which has registered cases under various sections of Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act against him, had also announced a reward of Rs 10 lakh for his capture.
A non-bailable warrant was issued against Bhatkal.

The IM, which is a banned organisation, was designated a terrorist group by the government under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act in June, 2010.
