New Delhi: Yasin Bhatkal, Indian Mujahideen co-founder and one of India's most wanted terrorists, was arrested from the Indo-Nepal border in north Bihar after being on the run for over five years, in the second big breakthrough for security agencies in a fortnight.

"Yasin Bhatkal was traced along the Bihar-Nepal border last night by our intelligence agencies. He is under the custody of Bihar police and the interrogation has been going on. Till now, this is the only information I can give you," Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde told reporters outside Parliament House.

30-year-old Yasin has been on the run since 2008. The IM leader is wanted in a string of terror attacks in Ahmedabad, Surat, Bangalore, Pune, Delhi and Hyderabad.

It is the second major breakthrough for Indian agencies after the arrest of Lashkar-e-Taiba bomb expert Abdul Karim Tunda on August 16.
Yasin, who co-founded IM in 2008 along with brother Riaz, is also wanted in the German Bakery bomb blast in Pune on February 13, 2010, that left 17 dead.

The IM was designated a terrorist group by the Government under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act in June, 2010. The banned outfit was declared by the US as a Foreign Terrorist Organisation in 2011.
