Ranchi (Jharkhand): A retired inspector who was arrested along with one other person in what police claimed was an alleged terror module had a clean stint of 39 years in the police department.

Mohammad Jallauddin was arrested by the Patna police from the Phulwari Sharif area of Patna on Wednesday along with Athar Parvez for allegedly hatching plans to sabotage Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Bihar visit. According to police, the two had links with PFI. "Jallauddin was earlier associated with Students’ Islamic Movement of India (SIMI),” Phulwari Sharif Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Manish Kumar told news agency PTI.
