New Delhi, The Special Cell of Delhi Police arrested Hanif Shaikh, a wanted member of the banned organization Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), from Bhusaval in Maharashtra on Thursday. The accused was absconding for about 22 years. Cases of UAPA and sedition were registered against him in New Friends Colony in 2001. There are 4 cases registered against Hanif in different states.

DCP Alok Kumar of Special Cell said that his team came to know that Hanif Hudai had identified himself as Mohammad Hanif. He is a teacher in an Urdu school by the same name in Bhusaval. The police team reached Bhusaval on 22 February and arrested him. According to the police, Hanif had joined the SIMI organization in 1997. After this he started the work of involving Muslim youth in the organization and radicalizing them. Seeing his radical thinking, the then SIMI President Sahid Badar made him the editor of the Urdu edition of SIMI magazine ‘Islamic Movement’. During this period he also wrote many inflammatory articles. A few days after giving him the responsibility of the magazine, he was given a room in SIMI’s headquarters in Zakir Nagar, Delhi.

The court had declared him a fugitive: Accused Hanif is accused of being involved in cases under the UAPA Act and other anti-national activities in Maharashtra. Whereas, in the case registered in Delhi, he was declared a fugitive by the court.
