New Delhi: A special team of Delhi Police has arrested an alleged member of the outlawed Indian Mujahideen (IM) from Darbhanga district in Bihar, police said here Wednesday. A court has sent him to 15 days in police custody.

Kafeel Ahmed, 50, whom police described as the banned group's motivator, was arrested from Darbhanga district Tuesday and brought to Delhi Wednesday, said an official.

"Including Ahmed, a total of 10 (alleged) members of Indian Mujahideen have been arrested since November 22 last year," Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime Branch) Ashok Chand claimed.

Earlier this month, Mohd Tarique Anjuman, claimed to be a founder-member of the Indian Mujahideen, was caught in a suburb of Patna.

"Ahmed has been working for the group for three years as a motivator, recruiter and communicator. He has been residing in Bihar for many years and has his relations with Ahmed Siddi Bappa alias Shahrukh, allegedly a key member of IM terror outfit," claimed Chand.

According to Chand, he used to look after a local mosque and run his cycle-repair shop in Darbhanga. "No criminal cases were lodged against him till date," he said.

He claimed that he had joined the module in 2008 and came in contact with Bappa, who had been assisting him in planning terror strikes.

He also used to convey messages to other operatives of the module.

"He used to recruit local youth after brainwashing their mind. He had a key role in providing safe hideouts to the terrorists," Chand claimed.

Ahmed was presented before the court of Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vinod Yadav, who sent him to 15 days police custody till March 6 after police submitted that they wanted to interrogate him to get details about his role, the organisation and its operations in the country.
