Rajkot Police Arrest Two Charged With Rs. 38 lakh Cryptocurrency Fraud

Rajkot: Five persons were booked for allegedly luring an Ahmedabad-based businessman.

Mumbai, Sep 24 (PTI) In yet another pointer to suspected SIMI-Indian Mujaheedin involvement in terror attacks in Delhi and other parts of the country, Mumbai police today arrested five persons, including the man who made bomb circuits used in the blasts in the national capital.

Mumbai Commissioner of Police Hasan Gafoor said the next target of the militants was Mumbai, the country’s financial capital.

The five arrested accused have been identified as Afzal Mutahib Usmani, Mohammad Saddik Shaikh, Mohammad Aarif Shaikh, Ahmed Zakir Shaikh and Shaikh Mohammad Ansari, all of whom hail from Azamgarh in Uttar Pradesh, the place linked to other militants arrested in connection with Delhi blasts.

All the arrested are suspected to be involved in Sankatmochan temple blast in Varanasi, serial blasts on Mumbai trains, attacks on courts in Lucknow and Faizabad in Uttar Pradesh, explosions in Hyderabad, Bangalore, Jaipur and planting of unexploded bombs in Surat, police said.

Also, Aarif was the one who made the bomb-circuits which were used in Delhi blasts and was allegedly in “close touch” with Atif, the head of Indian Mujaheedin and suspected mastermind of Delhi blasts.

“All the five arrested were involved in all the blasts across the country since 2005,” Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Rakesh Maria told mediapersons here.

While Usmani was arrested in Azamgarh, Saddik has been held in north-east Nehru Nagar in Mumbai, Aarif from north-east Kurla, Ansar from north-east Chembur and Zakir from Bhiwandi in neighbouring Thane district.

Ansar, a software engineer by profession, was responsible for assembling the bombs. Usmani had planted bombs at the Ahmedabad civil hospital and had stolen four vehicles from Navi Mumbai which were used in the Ahmedabad blasts, Maria said.

Saddik is believed to be one of the founder members of Indian Mujahideen along with Atif.

“Saddik used to lure youths from his village Sanjarpur in Azamgarh and was involved in the planning of Delhi and Ahmedabad blasts,” Maria said.

The police recovered ten kilograms of ammonium nitrate, four electric circuits, submachine gun and revolvers from the arrested persons. The explosives and weapons seized from them came from Karnataka, he said.

“Roshan Khan, founder member of Indian Mujahideen, is still at large and is suspected to be in Pakistan,” Maria said.

Khan, resident of Karnataka, has been active in Hyderabad, Maharashtra, Delhi and Gujarat, Maria said.

“Three of the accused had gone to Pakistan to undergo training, which was allegedly supported by the LeT and Huji,” Maria said adding the money for weapons and explosives came through Hawala channels.

“The five have been booked for criminal conspiracy and under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, Explosives Act and Arms Act,” Maria said.

These five have also been cited as accused in the chargesheet of the 7/11 serial train blasts in Mumbai.

All the five had at some point of their career worked for SIMI members but later broke away to form more radical Indian Mujahideen, he said.

Maria said one Aamir Raza in Pakistan is the “controller” of Indian Mujaheedin.
