Sami, a resident of Jamshedpur in Jharkhand, was arrested from Nuh, the district headquarter of Mewat on the Delhi-Alwar highway, about 45 km from Gurgaon on January 18 and was presented before a Delhi court, which had sent him to two weeks police custody.

Sami is the fifth terrorist to be arrested within a month in the ongoing operation by the Delhi Police's Special Cell against the Al Qaeda in the Indian Sub-continent (AQIS).

The Special Cell had in December last year arrested three AQIS operatives — Zafar Masood, Abdul Rehman and Mohammed Asif. All the three accused are in judicial custody.

Asif was the recruitment and training head of AQIS.

They have been booked under provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
