The Delhi Police special cell announced on Friday that a 48-year-old man had been detained in the walled city for allegedly acting as a hawala agent to finance terrorist groups including the Lashkar-e-Taiba and Al Badr.
A coordinated operation between the Jammu and Kashmir Police and federal authorities resulted in the arrest.
According to HGS Dhaliwal, the special commissioner of police (special cell), Mohammed Yaseen, a Turkman Gate resident, has been named as the culprit.
The police took action after receiving information about a suspect operating out of the Meena Bazar neighbourhood of Old Delhi and sponsoring terrorism from federal agencies and the J&K police. Accordingly, we sent out a raid team in and near Meena Bazar, and we managed to catch him, according to the police.
