Salim Khan, who was deported firom UAE, is believed to be the mastermind behind a terror attack on a CRPF camp in UP in 2008, which claimed 8 lives. Intelligence officials had also served him a Look Out Notice to Saleem Khan.

On the intervening night of Sunday and Monday, UP Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) sleuths in a joint operation with Maharashtra ATS arrested a suspected Lashkar-e-Taiyyaba militant wanted in connection to espionage and unlawful activities from Mumbai global airport.

Two terrorists arrested for the 2008 attack had told police that Khan that they had undergone training with Salim in Muzaffarabad in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK). Khan is now being interrogated and will soon be handed over to the U.P. ATS for further interrrogation.

According to the official, Salim, who left India in 2007, had played an important role in facilitating the "suicide" attack on a CRPF camp in Rampur, Uttar Pradesh, on January 1, 2008.

The UP ATS had previously sent out a "lookout notice" against Khan.

In Lucknow, Inspector General of UP ATS Aseem Arun said that after the arrest of ISI agent Aftab from Faizabad on May 3, 2017, the ATS had come to know that Salim Khan used to pass on directions to him and also send him money from overseas. The Maharashtra ATS had also been tipped off by the IB about his arrival at Mumbai airport, said officials.
