Indian authorities report the arrest of suspected terrorist Indian Mujahedeen leader Yasin Bhatkal, believed to be responsible for explosions in New Delhi, Mumbai and other major cities. In 2011, Bhaktal was captured on surveillance video dropping a bag in a German bakery in Pune, southeast of Mumbai, and subsequently leaving. Shortly afterward, a bomb exploded, killing 17 people and injuring 60. Bhatkal and several of his relatives founded Indian Mujahedeen and operated it from Pakistan, with authorities estimating hundreds of injuries from the group’s attacks over the years. Although previously detained years ago, Bhatkal traveled under a long list of pseudonyms and his capture has been hailed as a “major success” for Indian intelligence.
