Salim also allegedly gave Aftab assignments and informed him about sleeper cells so that Aftab could pass secret information received from across the border.

Salim was deported from Abu Dhabi by the United Arab Emirates authorities as he did not possess valid documents to support his stay in the Gulf country, said the police official in Mumbai on condition of anonymity.

On the intervening night of Sunday and Monday, UP Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) sleuths in a joint operation with Maharashtra ATS arrested a suspected Lashkar-e-Taiyyaba militant wanted in connection to espionage and unlawful activities from Mumbai worldwide airport.

Another officer said, "Two of the accused arrested for the attack had said in their interrogation that Khan, too, was with them in a terrorist training camp in Muzaffarabad in 2007". Eight people had died in the attack, seven among whom were Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel.

According to sources, Khan is a resident of Hathgao in Fatehpur, UP, and had been trained at a Muzaffarabad terrorist camp. "Khan is being taken in custody by UP ATS", said an officer.

Brown said that the rest of the offseason from a basketball operation perspective will not be influenced by this announcement. Instead he said that he had other passions and was looking towards changing the "fabric of his life".

Intelligence agencies at Mumbai worldwide airport pulled him aside for questioning after a lookout notice was issued against Salim.

According to the official, Salim, who left India in 2007, had played an important role in facilitating the "suicide" attack on a CRPF camp in Rampur, Uttar Pradesh, on January 1, 2008. Khan is now being interrogated and will soon be handed over to the U.P. ATS for further interrrogation.

"He is an LeT member", said Uttar Pradesh's Additional Director General Anand Kumar.

"Having obtained a Pakistani passport, Salim settled down in UAE to avoid arrest by the Indian security agencies", averred IG, UP ATS.

Khan is allegedly the financier of suspected ISI agent Aftab Ali, who was earlier arrested from Faizabad by the UP ATS. All three have been arrested in the course of a joint operation by investigators from Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh ATS units.
