Twenty four years after the blasts rocked India's financial capital, Qadeer Ahmed was arrested from UP's Bijnore district, the police officials said.
"TADA accused Qadeer Ahmed (a resident of Najibabad in Bijnore district) allegedly played an important role in smuggling arms and ammunition supplied by Tiger Memon (one of the prime suspects in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts) in Jamnagar, Gujarat, which were later used in the Mumbai blasts," a UP ATS official said.
Ahmed was arrested from Bijnore's Najijabad area, he said.
"He will be produced before a magistrate and taken to Gujarat on a transit remand," Arun said.
