External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee on Tuesday said Bangladesh had been told about terrorists operating in its territory but did not specify whether Dhaka had informed New Delhi about the reported arrest of a suspect linked to the recent blasts in Hyderabad.

Asked whether India has approached Bangladesh in connection with the reported arrest, he said officials in Dhaka have been given details of persons indulging in insurgency and other terrorist activities during a meeting of the Home Secretaries from the two sides.

"During the Home Secretary-level meeting, we suggested to them and we have given some particulars as we normally give to them about those who are indulging in all sorts of activities like insurgency and other terrorist activity and we seek their cooperation," Mukherjee told media persons in New Delhi.

According to intelligence inputs from across the border, Bangladesh Police picked up Mohammed Sharifuddin alias Abu Hamza, a suspected Bangladeshi HuJI operative, and were questioning him for his alleged role in recent bombings in Hyderabad.

Union Home Secretary Madhukar Gupta had said yesterday that information was being gathered on the reported arrest.
