Indian Journo Arrested in Connection With Mumbai Train Bombings


Police in India say they’ve made another arrest in the Mumbai train bombings.

A journalist who works for the Urdu Times was taken into custody over his alleged ties to an outlawed Islamic group suspected of taking part in the bombings that killed more than 200 people.

Police don’t believe the man, Danish Sheikh, played a direct role in the July 11th bombings. He is suspected of assisting the Students Islamic Movement of India, a banned Islamic group that authorities say may have played a role in the blasts, along with militants based in Pakistan.

The man is expected to appear in an Indian court later Monday.
