November 05, 2008 13:46 IST
The Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad on Wednesday arrested Lieutenant Colonel Srikant Purohit in connection with the September 29 Malegaon blasts, an ATS official said.
Purohit was interrogated two days ago by the ATS in connection with the blasts in Malegaon and was arrested today, Additional Commissioner of Police (ATS) Parambir Singh said.
Singh, however, refused to reveal Purohit's role in the blasts.
The army officer, who came under the scanner for his alleged role in the blasts, was stationed at the Army Education Corps Training College and Centre at Pachmarhi in Madhya Pradesh [Images] and was picked up by the ATS for questioning last week. Purohit will be produced before the Nashik court later today.
