An absconding member of right-wing Hindu group Sanatan Sanstha has been arrested for his alleged role in the 2009 Goa blast case, Maharashtra ATS on Monday said.

Prashant Juvekar, absconding since October 16 last year, was arrested from near Bhusawal railway station in Jalgaon district on July 31, state ATS chief Rakesh Maria said. Juvekar (24) was produced before a Nashik court which remanded him in police custody till August 3.

He was one of the four absconding accused, Maria said, adding Juvekar was played a key role in executing the blast.

The NIA, which has been probing the case, filed charge sheet in May and arrested five persons associated with the Sanathan Sanstha, he said.
