Kolkata: The Special Task Force (STF) of Kolkata Police has arrested a suspected operative of the terror outfit Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) from Chennai on Tuesday, a senior officer of the force said.
Thirty five-year-old Asadullah Sheikh alias Raja, a resident of West Bengal's Purba Burdwan district, was nabbed from his hideout in Chennai's Nilangarai area, he said.
The suspected JMB operative has been booked under several sections of the Indian Penal Code and will be produced before a court in Chennai's Alandur for his transit remand, the officer said.
Five suspected JMB members, including Raja, have been arrested by the Kolkata Police STF since the last week of August.
A top operative of the JMB, who was involved in the 2018 Bodh Gaya blast, was arrested by the STF of Kolkata Police from Bihar last week.
