Hyderabad, May 24 UNI | 2 months ago

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) sleuths produced top Indian Mujahideen suspects Tehsin Akhtar alias Monu and Pakistani National Waqas alias Zia-ur-Rehman -- involved in the 2013 Dilsukhnagar twin blasts cases -- before the NIA special court, Nampally, here today.


The NIA had yesterday obtained the three-day custody of the duo and they were being shifted to Hyderabad on Prisoner's Transit Warrant from Delhi.

Waqas was arrested in March by Special Cell in Rajasthan. He was allegedly involved in several terror attacks including the serial blasts in Mumbai in July 2011.

He was named as the prime accused in the Dilsukhnagar twin bomb blasts cases.

After the Wagas's arrest, the agents of Special Cell of Delhi police arrested 23-year-old expert bomb-maker Tahseen Akhtar last month for his alleged role in several terror attacks, including the blasts engineered in Patna in October 2013 targetting Narendra Modi's rally.

Tahseen had allegedly been running Indian Mujahideen since the group's co-founder Yasin Bhatkal was arrested last year near India-Nepal border.

The tech savvy operative, who frequented cyber cafes, had allegedly been tasked with recruiting young men for terror activities in Bihar.
