Kendrapara Youth Arrested at Delhi Airport Over Terror Links

Bhubaneswar: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) today arrested a Saudi Arabia-based Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist handler, Habibur Rahaman alias Habib, a resident of Odisha from the Indira Gandhi International airport in New Delhi.

Rahman, a native of Kendrapara district, was taken into custody after he arrived there from Saudi Arabia.

He is allegedly the handler of LeT terrorist Shaikh Abdul Naeem alias Nomi who was nabbed in 2007 while trying to infiltrate three terrorists – two Pakistanis and one Kashmiri – into India through Bangladesh. Sources said the NIA has arrested Rahman after receiving an Intel input that he was travelling to India.

Rahman reportedly arranged hideouts and funds for Shaikh Abdul Naeem on different occasions for carrying out terrorist activities in India on the directions of the LeT terrorist Amjad alias Rehan who is based in Pakistan.
