The daily, Himalayan Times, quoting an anti-terrorist squad member, identified the Pakistani national as Mustaq alias Safi, who is an alleged member of a terrorist outfit.
He was extradited to India on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the "police are interrogating Shiba Khadka and Habib Malik who have been arrested in a joint operation of the Nepali and Indian police," the newspaper said.
