Jabir had gone missing on August 28 when the police had raided his residence in Saeedabad searching for him. While his family had alleged that the police had picked him up, the police had denied the same.

Muslims say they are targetted

Police sources said that after he was taken in to custody by the police, Jabir was questioned about his links with Mufti Abu Bashar, who has been arrested by Gujrat police in connection with the recent serial blasts in Ahmadabad.

Jabir was a friend of Mufti Abu Bashar when latter was teaching in a Hyderabad Madarsa during 2005-06.

Jabir is one of the three sons of Moulana Naseeruddin who have been arrested by the police on terror related charges. While youngest Nasir was arrested in Karnataka and is in Belgaum jail, Yasser and Jabir are in Charlapally jail in Hyderabad.

A year on, Hyderabad blast investigation flounders
