In a major breakthrough, the Delhi Police has been successful in arrest of SIMI-IM operative Abdul Subhan Qureshi.

Police claimed that he is wanted in connection with the masterminding the 2008 Gujarat blasts.

Police sources informed that the Special Cell of Delhi Police nabbed Qureshi after a brief exchange of fire.

The case pertains to the July 26 of 2008 when series of bomb blasts ripped apart the Ahmedabad city.

Gujarat police after investigations announced him as a suspect in connection with an email claiming responsibility for the bombings.

It was also informed that the email was sent utilizing the WiFi connection of another citizen.

But that is not alone as Tureshi, also known as Tauqeer, is also being searched by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in connection to terror attacks in Delhi, Bengaluru and the 2006 Mumbai local train bombings.

Qureshi is also referred to within the intel circles as a ‘techie-bomber’, as he is said to be a bomb expert and had worked at top Indian IT companies located in Bengaluru and Hyderabad.
