MUMBAI: A suspected Indian Mujahiddeen (IM) operative wanted by Maharashtra, Karnataka and Gujarat Police forces for various acts of terror -- among these the July 2011 triple blasts of Mumbai -- was arrested from the airport here on Tuesday, a senior police officer said.

The IM operative, identified as Zain-ul Abedin, was nabbed at Chhattrapati Shivaji International Airport where the Maharashtra Anti Terrorist Squad had laid a trap for him, said Special Inspector General of Police (ATS) Niket Kaushik.

The three blasts on July 13, 2011, at Dadar, Opera House and Zaveri Bazar during the evening peak hours had claimed 26 lives besides injuring over 130 other people.
