Yasin aide held: Cops

The NIA Monday arrested an alleged accomplice of Yasin Bhatkal, who is said to be involved in recruiting and indoctrinating youths in Bihar for terrorism.

Danish Ansari, sources said, had met Indian Mujahideen operative Yasin Bhatkal at Al Hira Library at Lahariyasarai in Darbhanga in 2010, where the suspect discussed recruitment plans.

This was revealed during the interrogation of alleged IM operative Kafeel Ansari.

The sources said a non-bailable warrant had been issued against him. Security agencies had been on the trail of Danish Ansari as they claim that he used to provide shelter to Bhatkal who is allegedly hiding in Pakistan.

He was also wanted by the Delhi Police in a terror-related case it is probing.
