  • Suspected LeT terrorist arrested from Mumbai airport- India Tv

IG, ATS, said that during questioning, Aftab told the police Saleem used to issue instructions to him from overseas over phone and also sent money in exchange of information.

Another officer said, "Two of the accused arrested for the attack had said in their interrogation that Khan, too, was with them in a terrorist training camp in Muzaffarabad in 2007". "On the intervening night of July 16 and July 17, Salim Mohammad Khan arrived at Mumbai International Airport from United Arab Emirates and was picked up by officials from our Juhu unit".

A suspected Lashkar operative, believed to be involved in an attack on a CRPF camp in Uttar Pradesh in 2008, was picked up and arrested from the worldwide airport in the early hours of Monday. The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) suffered the casualties when five Lashkar-e-Taiba men sprayed bullets at its camp in a pre-dawn swoop.

Salim Munir Khan alias Abu Amaar alias Arif, a native of Hathgaon in Fatehpur district of Uttar Pradesh, was facing a lookout notice.

UP ATS and Maharashtra police are interrogating Salim Khan in Mumbai, Arun added.

Sources said Khan was "pushed back" after authorities in UAE learnt about his illegal activities - raising funds for terrorists and communicating with them - in their country.

Arun said, Kausar Farooqui and Mohammad Sharif, the two terrorists held in connection with Rampur CRPF camp attack, were trained along with Salim Khan at Muzaffarabad terror camp in Pakistan occupied Kashmir in 2007.

Khan is allegedly the financier of suspected ISI agent Aftab Ali, who was earlier arrested from Faizabad by the UP ATS.

"He is an LeT member", said Uttar Pradesh's Additional Director General Anand Kumar. Khan has been on the run ever since and had managed to hoodwink security agencies.

Personnel from Anti-Terrorism Squads of Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh were at the airport when Salim landed, the official said.
