A special team of the Kolkata Police STF arrested Zahid Hussain, a Bangladeshi national, from outside Kolkata rail station under Chitpore police station on Wednesday evening.

Hussain, a resident of Mirpur in Bangladesh, is suspected to be one of the main conduits of IM leaders in India, a senior STF official said on condition of anonymity.

"Zahid Hussain was in touch with all the important Indian Mujahideen leaders and used to supply them with fake Indian currency notes and explosives. He is also suspected to be involved in German Bakery blast in Pune," the official said.
    
"We are investigating all the aspects. He will be produced before the court tomorrow," he said.
