This is the fifth arrest in the case. NIA sources say that Samad had received Rs 3.5 lakh in 2007 from a hawala dealer in Muzaffarnagar. He in turn delivered the amount to Shaikh Abdul Nayeem, a key player of the outfit.

The NIA says that apart from moving money he was also in the process of setting up modules for the outfits. His activities were found in Bihar, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir. He is alleged to have taken instructions from his Pakistan based handler, Abdul Rehan. The NIA says that his custodial interrogation would reveal more details of his modus operandi.
