"This is a big success", declared Pramod Singh Kushwah, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Special Cell, who oversaw the operation that led to Khan's arrest. Khan was present at Batla House, along with four others, and had managed to give police the slip during the encounter on September 19, 2008 in Delhi's Jamia Nagar, in which two Indian Mujahideen terrorists were killed and as many arrested.
Kushwaha said Khan carried a bounty of Rs 15 lakh on his head, adding that the amount may even be higher as many state police departments had also announced a bounty on his head. "Almost 165 people died in incidents he was involved in", Kushwaha added. His accomplice, Tauqueer, was arrested earlier by the Delhi Police in January this year. The accused has been identified as a native of Azamgarh in Uttar Pradesh. He is an expert in making and executing bombs and was involved in serial bomb blasts in Delhi.
Another member of the Indian Mujahideen, Shahzad Ahmed, was caught in 2013 and sentenced to life in prison for his actions at the Batla House encounter. His aides Mohammad Saif and Khalid alias Kodi brought the explosive from Udupi (Karnataka) and he along with Atif Ameen, a friend from school days, received the explosives in Delhi. When Subhan was arrested, he had told the police that he had come down to India from Nepal to revive the outfit.

After the Batla House incident, he stayed in India for some time before fleeing to Nepal.
Later, he came in touch with a Nepali resident Nizam and with his help crossed the Indo-Nepal border from Bihar into the Himalayan country, he said. "After living in Nepal for a few years, both left for Saudi Arabia", the police officer informed.
