Saudi Arabia on Saturday informed the Indian authorities that Fasih Mohammed, a suspected terrorist apprehended by its authorities, may be deported to India soon.
An engineer by profession, 28-year-old Fasih is allegedly involved in the bomb blast at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore and the shooting incident near the Jama Masjid in Delhi in 2010.
He is wanted by both the Delhi and Karnataka police.
On the request of the Karnataka and Delhi Police, the CBI had asked the Interpol to issue a Red Corner Notice against Fasih, after which Saudi authorities have conveyed that he has been apprehended by them.
India is interacting with Saudi officials regarding the formalities to bring Fasih back.
Fasih’s wife Nikhat Parveen had approached the Supreme Court, claiming he was in the custody of central security agencies. She alleged that he was picked up by a joint team of Indian and Saudi officials on May 13.
