Delhi Police have arrested Indian Mujahideen's (IM) current India commander Tehsen Akhtar alias Monu, leading news channels reported. 

Akhtar is the main accused in a series of blasts targeting Narendra Modi rally in Patna in October. 

This comes days after the arrest of IM's Pakistani bomb-maker Zia-ur-Rahman alias Waquas. The arrest of the IM operative will essentially wipe out the known leadership of IM in India, TOI has said.

Akhtar is a top operative of the terror group and was its leader since the arrest of Yasin Bhatkal in August. He is wanted in several recent terror attacks.

More details awaited.
