MUMBAI: The police is still clueless about the whereabouts of a 35-year-old terror suspect in the 2006 Aurangabad arms haul case, a week after he jumped off a moving train near Raigarh in Chattisgarh and fled while he was being brought from Kolkata to Mumbai for trial.

The suspect, Shaikh Abdul Naeem alias Karim alias Sameer alias Nayyu, was first arrested in the arms haul case in 2007. He was taken in the state anti-terrorism squad (ATS) custody on a transit remand from the Kolkata police where he was arrested in 2006 for allegedly sending SIMI recruits to Pakistan via Bangladesh for terror training.

"Naeem has escaped from the police custody while being brought to Mumbai," confirmed Himanshu Roy, additional director general of police, ATS. Naeem, accused number 18 in the arms haul case, was to be produced before the MCOCA court in the Arthur Road jail premises on Tuesday for trial. He has given his confession before the police in this case.

Naeem was being escorted by four West Bengal policemen in the Howrah-Mumbai Superfast Mail when he jumped off the train between Kharsiya and Shakti railway stations on Sunday. He is facing a case of crossing the border in West Bengal and was lodged in Kolkata's Dumdum jail since late 2006. "He is alleged to have been sending new SIMI recruits to a neighboring country for terror training. He had also assisted some boys, accused in the arms haul case, to reach to Pakistan's training camps, said an ATS officer. In 2006, Naeem was in Bangladesh when the ATS first nabbed three persons at Manmad-Chandav highway in May for transporting illegal weapons. Police had colletively recovered 16 AK-46 rifles, 3,200 live bullets, 50 hand grenades from over a dozen accused. "One of my friends Amjad had given me Rs 1.35 lakh in Dhaka in 2006 while I was leaving for India," Naeem said in his confession.

It is note worthy that a suspected Indian Mujahideen operative, Afzal Usmani, who is also accused of planting explosive laden car in Gujarat for bomb blasts, escaped from Mumbai Sessions court in September 2013 and was arrested a month later from Nepal.

After Naeem's escape, the Kolkata police lodged a complaint with the Government Railway Police at Raigarh. Naeem,inmate escape from train,Aurangabad arms haul caes
