godhraAThe main conspirator in the 2002 Godhra train attack, Farooq Bhana, who was on the run for more than 14 years, was on Wednesday arrested by Gujarat Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS).

Bhana is the fourth absconding accused to be arrested who was involved in Godhra train carnage. The incident happened on February 27, 2002, when Sabarmati Express was set afire by a mob killing 59 passengers.

The train attack triggered widespread riots in Gujarat, wherein more than 1,000 people were killed.

Last year, Kasam Ibrahim Bhamedi was arrested by the ATS.
