Yasin Bhatkal, one of the co-founders of the banned Indian Mujahideen, was arrested by the Kolkata police in 2008 in a fake currency case, but was let off. One of the country's most-wanted men, Bhatkal was released soon.

The West Bengal police on Friday night said this is nothing new. "This is nothing new. The whole world knows it," Joint Commissioner of police, Special Task Force, Rajib Mishra said tonight when asked whether Bhatkat, a suspect in the Hyderabad serial

blasts, was arrested in a fake currency case here in 2008.
