Man arrested in Chile may be IC-814 hijacker

New Delhi: Chile police arrested a man named Abdul Rauf in January 2011, who may be one of the conspirators in the hijacking of Air India IC-814.
Rauf was arrested in a case of fake visa but during investigations Chile police found that Interpol has issued a notice against a person named Abdul Rauf who was involved in the hijacking.
Rauf is the brother-in-law of dreaded terrorist Maulana Azhar, who was released by India, as part of the ransom.
According to the CBI's chargesheet in the hijacking case, Rauf was in constant touch with the hijackers when the plan was being executed.
A team of Central Bureau of India (CBI) and Intelligence Bureau officials will leave for Chile on Tuesday to check he is the same Rauf who is an accused in the IC-814 hijack.
