Sultan was deported from Sharjah to Delhi 2 May by the NIA and brought before a special judge 3 May. NIA sources claimed Sultan provided hiding places to the top leadership of the IM since 2008. His name was disclosed by an arrested IM operative and later by IM co-founder Yasin Bhatkal.

Sultan was active in 2008 when the IM carried out a series of bombings in the country. NIA has booked him as an accused in cases of carrying out terror strikes in India.
