The National Investigation Agency (NIA) is likely to bring Rajender Chaudhary, arrested in the Samjhauta Express blasts case, to the city shortly in connection with the 2007 Mecca Masjid bomb blast case.

Chaudhary, also known as Samundar Das, was arrested on Saturday night at Nagda in Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh. He will be brought here on a prisoner’s transit warrant, sources in the NIA said.

A police custody petition will be filed in a court here for his interrogation, they said. “We will question Chaudhary with regard to the planting of two improvised explosive devices [IEDs] in the Mecca Masjid,” a senior official said.
