Serial blasts: Suspected aide of terrorists held

September 20, 2008 11:11 IST

A suspected aide of the terrorists allegedly involved in the serial blasts in New Delhi has been arrested.

Zeeshan, believed to be an aide of Atif who is alleged to have played a 'key role' in the recent Delhi [Images] blasts, was taken into custody from the studio of a news channel Friday night, a senior police official said.

"We had information that a person will be going to the studio to give an interview on behalf of terrorists. We picked him up from the TV studio for interrogation," the official said.

Asked whether Zeeshan was one of the two terrorists, who escaped from Friday's encounter site, the official refused to provide details, but said he could be one of those who arranged logistics like a house or car or other things.

Delhi Police had on Friday killed two terrorists, who allegedly had 'crucial' links to the Delhi blasts, in a fierce gun battle in Jamia Nagar of south Delhi.

While one terrorist, Mohd Saif, was arrested, two others managed to escape from the scene.
