Madhya Pradesh Police's anti-terrorist squad on Thursday claimed to have nabbed a terrorist, who is alleged to have planted a bomb in the Chennai Express nine years ago.
"Ishaq Khan was arrested on a tip-off from Madhavganj in Morena on Wednesday night. He planted a bomb in the Chennai Express while it was passing through the district on May 20, 2000," Morena Police Superintendent Amrit Meena said.
The bomb had been defused by the police after the train reached Chennai. A probe revealed that the device was wrapped in a newspaper published from Gwalior. On that basis, the Chennai Police investigated in Gwalior and Morena, but no arrest could be made then.
"Ishaq Khan was produced in a court today (Thursday) and remanded to four days of police custody," he said.
