India nabs terrorism suspect Yasin Bhatkal

Indian intelligence agencies have arrested Yasin Bhatkal, one of the country's most wanted terrorism suspects, Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde said Thursday.

Bhatkal is believed to be a co-founder of the Indian Mujahideen, a militant group banned in India and listed by the United States as a foreign terrorist organization.

Intelligence officials arrested him Wednesday in the eastern state of Bihar, near India's border with Nepal, Shinde said.
