New Delhi: A 'self-styled commander' of People's United Liberation Front and his associate were arrested here, police said Wednesday.

The arrested were identified as Mohammed Abbas (31) and his associate, Razzauddin (26).

Acting on a tip-off, the special cell of Delhi police arrested the duo from near Nizamuddin flyover last night, they said.

Abbas, who is a commander of PULF, was staying in a rented accommodation in Indira Vikas Colony of Mukherjee Nagar along with Razzauddin, a senior police officer said.

"Abbas has so far been found to be involved in as many as 12 cases of murder. He is also suspected to have executed the operations of PULF in Manipur. He is being interrogated for further details," he said.

"Among 12 cases of murder, he was involved in the killing of one India Reserve Battalion (IRB) personnel and two Sarpanches in separate incident in Manipur," he added.

Abbas had allegedly been staying here since he fled from Manipur after getting bail in a murder case in 2008.

"Abbas had made his base in Delhi. He used to visit Manipur only to execute the nefarious operations of PULF and come back here," the officer said.

About Razzauddin, the officer said, "it is still not clear whether he is also a member of the Manipur's militant outfit. We are investigating."

The duo used to steal vehicle in the Capital and sell them in Manipur after preparing their forged documents.
