Rajasthan Police's Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) Sunday arrested one more suspected member of the Indian Mujahideen, officials said.

An ATS officer said the 22-year-old man was detained from Sikar and arrested on charges of being a member of the terror outfit's Rajasthan module.

"The accused is pursuing a diploma in civil engineering from Sikar town. He was brought to Jaipur where he is being interrogated," he said.

The ATS has arrested six youths from Sikar, most of them students, for being involved in terrorist activities.

Besides these six, five suspected IM terrorists have been held from Jodhpur, 330 km from here, since March 22.

Four others, including a most-wanted terrorist, Pakistani national Waqas, and two engineering students have been held in Jaipur and Ajmer.
