The Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) on Monday traced and arrested one of the prime accused in the Mulund 2003 train blast that killed 13 people, Maharashtra police said.
W. Murtuza alias Babu, 44, has been on the run for seven years and was nabbed from his embroidery workshop in LBS Road in Kurla in eastern Mumbai Monday morning, ATS chief Rakesh Maria told reporters.
"His role in the Mulund 2003 train blast has been clearly spelt out in the charge sheet. He is a trained Karate black belt. Besides him, six more accused in the case are still absconding," Maria said.
