First arrest made over India's Hyderabad bombs: Police
NEW DELHI (AFP) - Indian police on Monday said they have made their first arrest in connection with last month's twin bombings which killed 16 people in the southern city of Hyderabad.
An official from the National Investigating Agency (NIA), a federal police unit that probes terror offences, said the suspect was arrested in the eastern city of Ranchi.
"A NIA team arrested Manzar Imam in Ranchi in connection with the (Hyderabad) blasts," the official told AFP in New Delhi, asking not to be named and giving no further details.
Senior Ranchi police officer Vipul Shukla said the NIA had also been hunting for the man in connection with a string of bombings in the western city of Ahmedabad which claimed 56 lives in 2008.
