Arwal: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has arrested a suspected Indian Mujahideen (IM) activist in connection with Bodh Gaya serial blasts from a village in Bihar`s Arwal district, police said on Sunday.
Acting on a tip off, the NIA team arrested the suspected IM activist Md Irfan from Auwgila village late last night, Superintendent of Police (SP) Shafi-Ul Haque said.
Immediately after his arrest, the NIA team took Irfan to Patna in a vehicle under tight security for questioning in connection with the Bodh Gaya serial blasts, the SP said.
