Tiruchirapalli: The brother of terror suspect Bilal Malik was arrested at the airport here today while trying to leave for Abu Dhabi on an allegedly fake passport, police said.

Mythin Madhar was arrested after a check of his passport by immigration officials showed it to be fake, they said, adding he was then subjected to a body search.

He was later handed over to airport police and booked under IPC Sections 467 (Forgery of valuable security, will, etc) 468 (Forgery for purpose of cheating) and 471 [using as genuine a forged document or electronic record] and 12(1) B of the Passport act.

Bilal Malik and ‘Police' Fakruddin were arrested in October last year in connection with the July 19 2013 murder of BJP state general secretary V Ramesh.

‘Police' Fakruddin, arrested on October 4, is among the three key suspects in the 2011 Advani pipe bomb case - the other two being Panna Ismail and Malik.

Panna Ismail and Bilal Malik were apprehended at Putur on the Tamil Nadu-Andhra Pradesh border on October 5 in a joint operation by police forces of both states.
