New Delhi: In a major breakthrough, chief of terror outfit Indian Mujahideen Tehseen Akhtar alias Monu, one of the most wanted terrorist blamed for a number of terror attacks, has been arrested by the Special Cell of Delhi Police.

The arrest of Akhtar days after Delhi Police nabbed another top IM operative Zia Ur Rehman alias Waqas from Ajmer in Rajasthan along with three of his associates.

Special Commissioner of the Special Cell S N Shrivastava confirmed his arrest to PTI but refused to divulge more details.

Akhtar was heading the Indian Mujahideen after the arrest of Yasin Bhatkal, co-founder of the terror outfit. With the arrest of Tehseen, almost the entire top leadership of Indian Mujahideen has been nabbed by the police.

Indian Mujahideen co-founder Ahmad Siddhibappa Zarar alias Yasin Bhatkal, Tehseen Akhtar alias Monu, Asadullah Akhtar alias Haddi and Zia Ur Rehman alias Waqas were the brains behind almost every IM attack on Indian soil.
