Mumbai ATS picks up Hyderabad suspect for alleged terror links

The Mumbai Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) has picked up a Hyderabadi man for his alleged terror links from Shaheen Nagar under Pahadishareef police station limits in old city here, police officials said on Friday.

Syed Maqbool has been taken away by a Mumbai ATS team on suspicion of having alleged links with a terror outfit, a senior police officer confirmed. However, when asked in connection with which case Maqbool was picked up, he replied saying, "It was still not clear".

Maqbool, aged in his mid-30s, is said to be a former associate of one Azam Ghori, who was an alleged member of the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT), and was also a convict in a murder case of a jeweller in Hyderabad, the police officer added.

Ghori, who was reportedly involved in some cases of murder and bomb explosions in cinema theatres in Hyderabad, was shot dead in an encounter in April 2000 in Karimnagar district of Andhra Pradesh.

Earlier, the Bengaluru police had arrested a Hyderabadi youth Ubed-ur-Rahman from old city here on August 31, as part of a terror module busted in Karnataka.

Investigators also reportedly found that another terror suspect Akram of Nanded in Maharashtra who was also arrested by the Karnataka police subsequently, had stayed in Hyderabad and ran a fruit juice shop.

Hyderabad police had said that they would ascertain from their Bengaluru counterparts if the terror module in Karnataka had any connection with the city.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
