Abdul Subhan was arrested from Sarai Kale Khan bus stand earlier last week and was subjected to interrogation during which he spoke about “brain washing” of young men from Rajasthan, Haryana and Bihar, police claimed.
His name had surfaced during the probe and questioning of two accused persons Mohammad Shahid and Qari Rashid, both residents of Mewat district in Haryana. They had named Subhan as the prime motivator who conducted recruitment on behalf of the LeT.
Sources said dots were joined and it was found that in 2013, a known Lashker-e-Taiba terrorist of Pakistan had been in touch with a few Rajasthan and Haryana phone numbers and a conspiracy to commit a terrorist strike in the national capital was being discussed.
The caller of this number had been visiting Delhi frequently, after which a massive manhunt was launched which led to Subhan’s arrest.
