Bihar: NIA picks up father of terror suspect

September 02, 2013 18:31 IST

A National Investigation Agency team on Monday picked up the father of fugitive terror suspect Md Tehseen Akhtar, alias Monu, from Maniyarpur in Bihar's Samastipur district for questioning, police said.

A six-member NIA team came to the village and went straight to the house of Md Wasim Akhtar, Monu's father, where they questioned the family members about the whereabouts of the absconding suspect.

The NIA team then took Wasim Akhtar to Kalyanpur police station for questioning. He was later taken to an undisclosed destination, police added.

The senior Akhtar's blood sample, too, was collected.

Monu is wanted in connection with several terror attacks across the country.
