The Gujarat Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) has arrested four persons wanted in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case, who were on the run for 29 years, officials said on Tuesday.

The four accused have been identified as Abu Bakar, Saiyad Qureshi, Mohammad Shoeb Qureshi and Mohammad Yusuf Ismail, all residents of Mumbai, they said.

They were nabbed from Sardarnagar area of Ahmedabad on May 12, following a specific tip-off on their whereabouts, Additional Director General of Police Amit Vishwakarma told reporters.

“As requested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which is probing the serial blasts case, the Interpol had also issued a Red Corner Notice against them,” the official said.
