    ATS arrests 8th suspect in Pune blasts, News - City - Mumbai Mirror
    Son of a Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) corporator arrested

    Tuesday, January 15, 2013 at 04:34:09 AM

    A 40-year-old has been arrested by the Nasik unit of Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) in connection with last year’s low-density serial blasts in Pune. The accused, identified as Bunty Jahagirdar, was picked up on Sunday from Shrirampur taluka of Ahmednagar district, where he works as a social activist.

    The ATS is currently investigating his suspected role in funding the Pune attacks and providing explosives to Ahmednagar’s Irfan Landge, who was arrested earlier for his role in the blasts. One person was injured when three low-intensity blasts shook the posh Jangli Maharaj Road on August 1.

    Shortly after the blasts, the Delhi Police had arrested four people from different parts of India, while the Maharashtra ATS had nabbed three people allegedly belonging to the banned Indian Mujahideen. Jahagirdar, who is son of a Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) corporator Razia from Shrirampur Municipal Council, is the eight person arrested in the case.

    Jahagirdar was on the radar of intelligence agencies ever since his arrest in August 2006 for helping an ISI spy Arif Lakhani. He has 10 cases registered against him and was externed from Ahmednagar for two years. During his externment period, Jahagirdar had gone to stay at Bhiwandi, where he came in touch with the members of Gujarat Riots Revenge Force. He had also stayed at Mumbai’s MLA hostel during his externment.

    On Monday, ATS officials produced him in the Mumbai MCOCA court, which remanded to police custody till January 24. “He is being interrogated for his role in arranging and transferring funds for execution of the terror act. Also he will be questioned to check if he had any role in arrangement of explosives used in the bombs that were planted at the spot,” said an ATS officer. “Further probe is on to find if there were others involved in the conspiracy,” he added.
