Indian police arrest most-wanted terrorist from Nepal border

NEW DELHI, Feb. 14 (Xinhua) — Indian police Wednesday claimed to have arrested one of its most-wanted terrorists who carried a reward of 20,000 U.S. dollars on his head.

Officials said that Aariz Khan, alias Junaid, a member of home-grown terror outfit Indian Mujahideen, was nabbed by a special team of Delhi Police from the India-Nepal border.

“It’s a big catch as Khan had been absconding since 2008,” P.S. Kushwaha, deputy commissioner of Delhi Police, told the media.

Khan, wanted in several terror attacks cases, was on the run after his escape during an encounter at a residential building in Delhi, along with some fellow terrorists, in 2008.

The dreaded gunfight, known as Batla House encounter, took place six days after serial bomb blasts rocked Delhi, claiming the lives of at least 30 people.

During the encounter, cops had gunned down two Indian Mujahideen terrorists but also lost one of its men, inspector Mohan Chand

Tip from crime reporting app leads to arrest of fugitive

An anonymous tip sent in through the STOPit app helped police arrest Justin Tomlinson, 29, of Manville, who had skipped a court appearance on burglary charges, Somerset County Prosecutor Michael H. Robertson said.

The STOPit app can be used to submit tips and alert police to crimes. Somerset County began using the app in the fall.

Robertson said the tip came in to the Somerset County Communications Center at 1 a.m. on Friday, and included information on Tomlinson’s location.

Tomlinson, named a Somerset County Fugitive of the Week in December, was arrested by Manville police.

STOPit app is a neighborhood watch on steroids

A warrant had been issued for Tomlinson on Sept. 11 when he failed to appear in Somerset County Superior Court after being charged with third-degree burglary. Tomlinson was held at the Somerset County Jail pending a detention hearing.

The STOPit app allows for anonymous two-way communications with dispatchers and police.
