    Maharashtra ATS has arrested an NCP corporator’s son for his alleged involvement in the Pune serial blast case.

    Bunty Jagirdar (40), who is a resident of Shrirampur in Ahmednagar district, was arrested by the Anti-Terrorism Squad on Sunday from Shrirampur taluka of Ahmednagar district, where he works as a social activist.

    Bunty, who is also known as Aslam Shaikh happens to be the son of Raziabi, a member of the Shrirampur Municipal Council, who was elected to the Malegaon Municipal Council on a Nationalist Congress Party ticket.

    According to police sources, he was a suspect in two murder cases in Mumbai, one of which took place in Kandivli in 2000 and other in Bhiwandi in 2002, in which a lawyer, Ravindra Jain, was killed. He has been held by the ATS on 12 previous occasions.

    DNA quoted ATS officials as saying that the decision to arrest Jagirdar was taken after Irfan Landge, who was arrested earlier in the case, revealed that he had purchased revolvers and cartridges from Jagirdar.

    ATS officials produced him in the Mumbai MCOCA court on Monday. the court remanded him in police custody till January 24.

    According to another ATS officer, “He is being interrogated for his role in arranging and transferring funds for execution of the terror act. He will be questioned to check if he had any role in arrangement of explosives used in the bombs that were planted at the spot.â€￾

    Meanwhile, Ahmednagar SP Raoshaheb Shinde said, “Our records show that Jagirdar has been a suspect in various crimes in the past. His involvement was suspected in cases of assault, kidnapping, drug pushing and theft.â€￾

    In the three low-intensity blasts that took place in the post Jangli Maharaj Road locality on August 1 led to one person being injured.

    Shortly after the blasts, Delhi Police had arrested four persons from different parts of India. The Maharashtra ATS also had nabbed three others, allegedly belonging to the banned Indian Mujahideen.

    Jahagirdar happens to be the eight person to be arrested in the case so far.

    Should Anti-terrorism squad be declared communal by secular UPA?
