his associate, Razzauddin (26).

Abbas, who is a commander of PULF, was staying in a
rented accommodation in Indira Vikas Colony of Mukherjee Nagar

"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.

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
