Kalimuddin is most wanted terrorist of Al Qaeda was picked up by a special team of ATS. He has been arrested from Tatanagar railway station. He was preparing and motivating the youths for jehad in Indian sub-continent.
He has been changing locations and appearances continuously to dodge the police. We had formed special teams which have been keeping an eye on him and tracing his possible locations said, Murari Lal Meena, additional director general of police (ADGP, operation).
As soon as they got a tip-off that Kalimuddin had come to his home in Azad Nagar, Jamshedpur, their team arrested him. He had been absconding from the police for the last 3 years, and now that they have finally caught him, this arrest will help them in cracking the AQIS network in Jharkhand and also other parts of the country.
Kalimuddin and his son Huzaifa were believed to have fled to Bangladesh or Nepal after being released by Jamshedpur city police in 2016. They were released after some local leaders in the Mango area of the city assured the police that they will produce them in a police station whenever required.
Katki was arrested by Delhi Police’s special cell from Odisha’s Cuttack on December 2015 and Sami from Nuh in Haryana in January the next year.
Syed MdZeeshan Ali Haider, also from Mango, was arrested in Delhi on August 10, 2017, after being deported from Saudi Arabia. His brother Syed MdArshian Ali is believed to have joined ISIS in Syria.
Kalim is the ninth in the list of suspected AQIS operators in India and fourth from Jharkhand against whom proclaimed absconder order was issued by the courts so far.
ATS sources said another wanted terrorist Abu Sufiyan from Chatra has been traceless for long and believed to have been in jail in Syria after allegedly joining ISIS.
Earlier, a special designated court in Delhi had issued the proclaimed absconder order against eight suspected AQIS terrorists, including three from Jharkhand. Zeeshan, Arshian Ali and Abu Sufiyan from Misraul under Tandwa police station in Charta district of the state were among them. Two more operators Ahmad Masood Akram alias Monu and Raju alias Naseem Akhtar are currently in Ghaghidih jail.
