LeT bomber arrested; produced in court

New Delhi, Aug 17 : The Delhi Police on Saturday arrested top bomber of terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) Syed Abdul Karim alias Tunda and produced him in a local court later the same day.

The Special Cell of Delhi Police arrested Tunda, who is one of India's 20 most wanted terrorists, from the Indo-Nepal border early Saturday.

The 70-year-old is wanted in India for 40 terror and 33 criminal cases.

Tunda, who masterminded 40 blasts in New Delhi, Panipat, Sonepat, Ludhiana, Kanpur and Varanasi between December 1996 and January 1998, killing 21 people and injuring over 400 others.

He was a resident of Pilkhuwa city of Uttar Pradesh.

"After the serial blasts, Tunda allegedly fled to Bangladesh where he came under direct command of Lashkar chief Zaki ur Rehman Lakhvi. He soon became LeT's top bomb maker," reported NDTV.

"In the dossier handed over to Pakistan after the 26/11 attacks, Tunda ranks number 15. The dossier also claims he is close to Jamat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed, the alleged mastermind of the Mumbai terror attacks," the news channel said.

He was reportedly arrested in Kenya once, but was released in a case of mistaken identity.
