CBI puts past behind; updates all-new terror list

A source within the agency revealed the CBI meticulously reviewed the wanted-person's list against whom Interpol notices have been issued. Following which communications were sent to the respective state police who was asked to give updates on their whereabouts and status. The latest list has been updated on the CBI website.
