KOLKATA: The Special Task Force (STF) of the Kolkata Police has arrested a member of banned terror outfit Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) from West Bengal's East Burdwan district in connection with the January 2018 Bodh Gaya blast, an official said on Tuesday.

Working on credible source information, the STF officers arrested Abdul Rahim from Bajepratappur Charkhumbha bus stop on Katwa Road.

"Abdul Rahim, a resident of Murshidabad district was arrested on Monday evening. He was associated with JMB leaders like Abdul Wahab (arrested), Moulana Yousuf (arrested) and others. He is an active member of the JMB's Dhulian Module in West Bengal," an STF officer said.
