Nepalese national Samshul Hoda, an alleged ISI agent and the prime suspect in the November Kanpur train tragedy, has been arrested here after being deported from Dubai, police said today.
Hoda, 48, was arrested by a special team of Nepal Police along with three others.
He has been arrested at the Tribhuvan International Airport yesterday, said Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) Pashupati Upadhyaya.
The police have brought Hoda and three other criminals to Nepal from Dubai in coordination with the Interpol, Upadhyaya told PTI.
We have heard that Hoda is wanted in a railway accident that took place in Kanpur last year killing 150 people,” Upadhyaya said.
The three others arrested persons have been identified as Brij Kishor Giri, Ashish Singh and Umesh Kumar Kurmi, all from Kalaiya district in southern Nepal.
