Reports claimed on Thursday that co-founder Ahmed Sidibapa alias Yasin Bhatkal, who was recently arrested from the Indo-Nepal border, may have been replaced by the number two in the home-grown terror outfit Indian Mujahideen.
Police teams from AP will soon be sent to Bihar to question arrested IM co-founder Yasin Bhatkal and his aide Asadulla Akhtar in connection with the February 21 twin bomb blasts case here, a top police official said on Thursday.
Hailing the arrest of Indian Mujahideen co-founder Yasin Bhatkal as a big success for intelligence agencies, Maharashtra Home Minister R R Patil today said a state ATS team would soon leave to interrogate him and seek his custody.
Abdul Samad Bhatkal, prime suspect
in the February 13 Pune German Bakery blast who was recently
arrested from Mangalore, was seen near the eatery a fortnight
before the explosion, a senior ATS official said Tuesday.
