    NEW DELHI: Indian Mujahideen terrorist Ejaz Sheikh, wanted in several cases including a terror strike in Jama Masjid here, was arrested on Friday night from Saharanpur area of western Uttar Pradesh by the Special Cell of Delhi Police. "IM operative Ejaz Sheikh has been arrested. He was nabbed from Saharanpur last night. He was involved in several terror cases including the Jama Masjid attack," Special Commissioner (Special Cell) S N Shrivastava said. Sheikh is a resident of Pune. He is considered a "technical expert" and a key member of Indian Mujahideen. He had been absconding since long and was apprehended by team of Special Cell last night following a specific tip off. The arrest of Sheikh is yet another major setback to IM in the last two years. In March this year, Tehseen Akhtar alias Monu, the India operations chief of Indian Mujahideen (IM) was arrested from Indo-Nepal border by the Special Cell. His arrest had come days after the same unit of Delhi Police had nabbed another top IM operative Zia Ur Rehman alias Waqas from Ajmer in Rajasthan along with three of his associates. One of the most wanted terrorists of the country, Ahmad Siddhibappa Zarar alias Yasin Bhatkal and his key associate Asadullah Akhtar alias Haddi were arrested from Indo-Nepal border last year.

    Indian Mujahideen had Plans to Carry Out Terror Attacks in Muzaffarnagar, say Delhi Police Sources

    NEW DELHI: Homegrown terror group Indian Mujahideen had plans to carry out attacks in Muzaffarnagar in retaliation to the widespread riots in UP. The information was found after checking the laptop of the group's alleged tech head Ajaz Sheikh, said sources in Delhi Police. Sheikh was arrested on September 5 by the Delhi Police Special Cell from western Uttar Pradesh's Saharanpur.
    His laptop contained an email - purportedly written by alleged terrorist Mohsin Chaudhary and IM founder Riyaz Bhatkal -which provided the details of the plan. As in the previous blast cases, the mail was to be sent via proxy servers after the attacks had been carried out. Sheikh, who worked at a call center in Pune, allegedly helped IM operatives with fake identity cards and forged documents. He is believed to be associated with the group since 2009 and was allegedly involved in several attacks including the Jama Masjid blast. Ajaz's arrest is yet another setback to the IM which had seen several key arrests in the last two years. In March, Tehseen Akhtar alias Monu, an alleged expert bomb maker, was arrested from the Indo-Nepal border. His arrest came days after another top IM operative, Zia Ur Rehman alias Waqas, was nabbed from Ajmer in Rajasthan along with three of his associates. Yasin Bhatkal, who headed the India operations of IM and his key associate Asadullah Akhtar alias Haddi, were arrested from Indo- Nepal border last year.
