India's Bin Laden in custody after Delhi shootout

Delhi police nabs most wanted criminal Abdul Subhan Qureshi

Abdul Subhan Qureshi is one of the most wanted terrorists in India and has been called India's Bin Laden.

Later, Qureshi allegedly told Bashar he had met leaders of the Indian Mujahideen, which will conduct serial blasts in Ahmadabad as a revenge for the Gujarat riots, said the officer. Over 200 persons were also injured. He was arrested when he came to meet an old associate.

A pan-India search for Abdul Subhan Qureshi had been underway for the past few years before he was finally arrested on Monday.

"Qureshi held several camps in Madhya Pradesh, Kerala and Gujarat to train its cadres to wage jihad against the Indian establishment. We have recovered a 9mm pistol and 5 cartridges from him".

A Delhi Police official said that in SIMI, where Qureshi rose through the ranks, he was part of the more militant Safdar Nagori camp - the other camp, of Badar Falah, was believed to have been relatively moderate. Qureshi has been also been linked to the July 2011 blasts in Mumbai.




By 2005, after reviving SIMI in South India and forging proper ties with IM, he diverted his energies to carrying out action in Maharastra and Gujarat. He is also a suspect in the 2006 Mumbai train blasts.

Qureshi graduated from Antonio DeSouza High School in Mumbai in 1988 after finishing schooling from an institution run by an Islamic trust in Byculla, as per the record of security agencies.

He was working with a top IT firm before he joined SIMI in 2001-2002. His name was first declared as a suspect by the Gujarat police in links with an email signed "al-Arabi" of terror group Indian Mujahideen, claiming accountability for the bombings, which was sent to TV channels. "Qureshi is the mastermind of the Ahmedabad blasts". The Delhi, police has called the arrest a breakthrough just before Republic Day celebrations on Friday.

In continuation of the blasts, the terrorists of IM planted IEDs at several places in Surat, The IEDs did not explode due to malfunctioning of the timer device. He returned from Saudi Arabia in June 2017.
