Actually, he had fled away to UAE (United Arab Amirat) on 1st February 2019 when one of his associate was arrested by NIA . He was arrested by NIA as soon as he landed at Delhi airport. He has been produced before NIA court for police remand today. Tantray’s deportation is seen as another example of security cooperation with West Asia countries over the last few years, particularly Saudi Arabia and UAE. The NIA official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Nisar Ahmed Tantray was flown in on a special aircraft from Dubai on Sunday and arrested by the NIA at the Delhi airport. Actually, Nisar had been on the run after the December 2017 attack when three heavily-armed hurled grenades and entered the 185th battalion camp of the CRPF in Lethpora at around 2 a.m. The NIA official said that a warrant for Nisar’s arrest was issued for having acted as one of the conspirators in the Lethpora attack. An official of the home ministry said that Nisar fled to the UAE on Feb.1. As per reports, intelligence agencies recently zeroed in on his location following which the Indian government pursued the matter with UAE authorities for his deportation amid a crackdown on JeM in India, the home ministry official said, requesting not to be named. According to reports, Mudasir Ahmed Khan, alias ‘Mohd Bhai’, the 23-year-old electrician who arranged the vehicle and explosives used in the suicide bombing that killed 40 CRPF jawans in Pulwama this February had also been recruited by Noor Mohammed. It is believed that he was brought back to India by Indian agencies. He is younger brother or Noor tantray, the slain commander of JeM. Hindusthan Samachar/Pramod
