Indian police said Saturday they had arrested a top member of a banned militant outfit accused of helping mastermind over 40 deadly bomb attacks across the country, including the 1993 Mumbai blasts.
Seventy-year-old Abdul Karim Tunda, an alleged member of the banned Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba group, was arrested by a special Delhi police team near India's border with Nepal Friday.
"This arrest is a huge achievement for the country's security agencies," S.N. Srivastava, Special Commissioner of police, told a news conference in the national capital.
