Terror funding suspect held at Jaipur airport

A “terror-funding” suspect was detained when he landed at the Jaipur International Airport on Sunday, police said.

The suspect, Mohammed Hussain Maulani, is a 48-year-old man who’s a native of Rajasthan’s Nagaur district, but who has been living in Dubai for over two decades. He was detained at immigration with the help of Rajasthan Police and the Anti-Terrorism Squad on Sunday night when he landed in Jaipur from Dubai, sources at the police headquarters said on Monday. Authorities then handed him over to the National Investigation Agency.

Maulani’s name emerged in a terror funding case that the NIA’s investigating. There was a look out circular issued against him in 2018.

Three people were arrested in the same case last year. Maulani has been accused of transferring money to the Lashkar-e-Taiba, a militant Islamic outfit whose operations are primarily based in Pakistan.
