"Yasin Bhatkal was arrested from Nepal border, he is with the Bihar police and being interrogated," Shinde told reporters here.
Bhatkal was reportedly caught at the Bihar-Nepal border, after a tip-off from the FBI to the National Investigation Agency (NIA).
Bhatkal is wanted for several terror attacks across India and was the key conspirator and recruiter of the terror outfit. He is also the brain behind terror modules in at least eight cities.
