NEW DELHI:  An aide of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim allegedly responsible for gunning down of two BJP leaders in Gujarat's Bharuch district, was today arrested at the Indo-Nepal border by central security agencies with the help of Nepal Police.

Brother of Javed Chikna, one of the close aides of Ibrahim, Abid Patel was nabbed when he was crossing over to Nepal, official sources said.

They said security agencies had been tracking his activities after his name surfaced in the conspiracy of the killing of the two BJP leaders. The sleuths had information that he would be crossing over to Nepal from Bihar.

The central security agencies had taken their Nepalese counterparts into confidence and in a joint operation Abid was

nabbed as he had entered into the Nepalese territory, the sources said.

He will be handed over to Gujarat Police, who will question him in connection with the murder case.

Two unidentified gunmen had shot dead former party president of Bharuch district and senior RSS member Shirish Bangali and the Bharuch district general secretary of BJP's youth wing Pragnesh Mistry on November 2.
