Deputy Commissioner of Police Ashok Chand said: “Tariq is co-founder of IM. He joined SIMI in 1998 and is an engineering student.”
The suspected terrorist was arrested by special investigation team (SIT) of Delhi Police.
Tariq was allegedly involved in the blast at the Jama Masjid and a blast in Bangalore. He used to recruit fresh cadre for the terrorist organization.
