The Delhi Police’s special cell team on Tuesday took Lashkar-e- Taiba (LeT) bomb expert Abdul Karim Tunda to his native place in Pilkhuwa in Uttar Pradesh where they examined the various cases registered against him in the city’s police station.
They later took Tunda to his house where his family members refused to meet him.
Delhi Police had arrested Tunda on August 16 from the India-Nepal Border.
Tunda was born in Delhi and later shifted to Pilkhuwa, a village in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad District. Tunda turned into a Jehadi militant at the age of 40. He is said to have had a role in the 1993 Bombay blasts as well as in bomb explosion incidents in Ludhiana, Hyderabad, Sonepat, Panipat and Surat.
The Delhi Police has named Tunda as an accused 21 terror cases and claims that his role was also to provoke Muslim youth and to train them to make IED. He is known to be an expert in the making of bombs with the help of Uria nitrci acid, and other chemicals.
The Delhi Police is also claiming that he was in touch with Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). In 2008, India had sent a list of most wanted terrorists to Pakistan which included the name of Tunda.
