Abdullah Inquilabi, a self-styled divisional commander of the outfit in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri, was caught by Delhi Police's Special Cell, the elite anti-terror wing, last night from Deer Park near Indian Institute of Technology soon after he alighted from a bus.

"As soon as he alighted, we tried to catch him. He tried to escape and went inside the park and we chased him. In a bid to escape, he opened fire. Three-four rounds were fired," a senior police official said.

Inquilabi, who was arrested after a brief exchange of fire, has been staying in the country for the past 10 years and had reached the capital five days ago, the official said.The suspected militant told the investigators that he had come to the capital to find a hide-out as Jammu and Kashmir police was searching for him, the official said, adding there are about ten cases registered against him there.

Inquilabi is suspected to be involved in several Hizbul operations in the country besides collection of funds for the terror outfit.
