Fasih is the third suspected terrorist to be deported by Saudi Arabia over the past few months, beginning with 26/11 Mumbai attacks handler Abu Jundal in June. On October 8, Riyadh sent back A Rayees — an associate of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) suspect Thadiyantavide Nazir — who was wanted in Kerala’s 2009 arms haul case.

“It is a very important catch,” home secretary RK Singh said.http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/Popup/2012/10/23-10-12-pg-mumbai-02.jpg

Fasih, who was working as an engineer in Saudi Arabia, has been accused of being involved in the Chinnaswamy Stadium blast in Bangalore and the shooting outside Delhi’s Jama Masjid in 2010.
 
His name had cropped up during the interrogation of IM operatives arrested from Bihar’s Darbhanga in November last year.
