NDFB militant Mridul Goyari, an accused in last year's October 30 twin blast at Barpeta Road that claimed 21 lives, was apprehended by the police from Tezpur in Assam's Sonitpur district on Monday.

The militant was handed over to CBI officials here who had chargesheeted him for his alleged involvement in the incident and produced before the Kamrup Chief Judicial Magistrate Robin Phukan, the police said.

The CJM remanded him to judicial custody.

The banned outfit was behind the devastating serial blasts that rocked the state claiming 90 lives and leaving nearly 500 injured on the day.

The state government had handed over the inquiry to the CBI which chargesheeted 19 NDFB militants, including its chief Ranjan Daimary. Only six of them have been arrested so far.
