With the arrest of Tehseen, almost the entire top leadership of Indian Mujahideen, has been nabbed by the police
In a major breakthrough, a Special Cell of Delhi Police arrested Tehseen Akhtar alias Monu, the current chief of terror outfit Indian Mujahideen (IM). Akhtar is one of the most wanted terrorist blamed for a number of terror attacks in India.
Special Commissioner of the Special Cell SN Shrivastava confirmed his arrest but refused to divulge more details.
Akhtar was heading the IM after the arrest of Yasin Bhatkal, co-founder of the terror outfit.
With the arrest of Tehseen, almost the entire top leadership of Indian Mujahideen has been nabbed by the police.
Earlier, Delhi Police nabbed another top IM operative Zia Ur Rehman alias Waqas from Ajmer in Rajasthan along with three of his associates.
Indian Mujahideen co-founder Ahmad Siddhibappa Zarar alias Yasin Bhatkal, Tehseen Akhtar alias Monu, Asadullah Akhtar alias Haddi and Zia Ur Rehman alias Waqas were the brains behind almost every IM attack on Indian soil.
