A militant was on Tuesday arrested in South Delhi and 2.5 kg RDX was seized from his possession, police said.

Aijaz Hussain, hailing from Baramulla district of Jammu and Kashmir, was arrested from Lodhi Road area after police received a tip-off about his movement, Delhi's Deputy Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Alok Kumar said.

Police was interrogating him to find out if he has any links with the serial blasts in Srinagar and Mumbai and to find which terrorist outfit he belonged to, he said.
