Delhi police arrests founder of Indian Mujahideen and 2008 Gujarat Blast mastermind Abdul Subhan Qureshi

In a major breakthrough, the Delhi Police on Monday arrested Abdul Subhan Qureshi, who was one of India’s most wanted terrorist, and the mastermind of 2008 Gujarat terror attack which killed at least 58 people. Qureshi who is also the founder of Indian Mujahideen was on the run for almost 10 years.

As per reports, Qureshi was earlier living in Nepal using forged documents and had decided to return back to India for reviving the Indian Mujahideen. He was arrested by the Special Cell of the Delhi police after a light exchange of fire.

PS Kushwah the Deputy Commissioner of Police (Special Cell), termed Qureshi as India’s most wanted terrorist. Qureshi is also on the National Investigative Agency’s (NIA) most wanted list and had a bounty of Rs 4 lakh on his head.

The visuals of his arrest have started emerging:

The hunt for Qureshi began soon after the 21 bomb blasts in Ahmedabad on July 26, 2008, when the Gujarat police announced him as a suspect following an email by Indian Mujahideen which claimed responsibility for the attack.

Apart from this, Qureshi was also wanted by the NIA for his alleged involvement in the 2006 Mumbai local train attacks, and blasts in Delhi, Bangalore. Qureshi is believed to be a tech-savy terrorist, who apart from being a bomber, was an employee with IT companies Bengaluru and Hyderabad. He was later allegedly recruited by Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) in 1998.

Qureshi, a native of Madhya Pradesh’s Rampur, is also considered an expert in changing appearances and carries aliases like Abdul Subhan Usman Qureshi, Kasim, Zakir, Qab and Touqeer. This might be the reason why he was so successful in giving the police a slip for such a long time.
