Patna: Bihar Police on Wednesday arrested a 2008 Ahmedabad blasts accused from Gaya district.

The accused has been identified as Tausheek Ahmad.

On the basis of information gathered from the two, another person Shahber Khan of Shahdeo Khap village has been arrested for giving shelter to Tausheek Ahmad, the DSP said.
