Bhopal/Mumbai: An alleged member of the banned organisation SIMI, wanted in a 2006 case of arms seizure in Maharashtra, was arrested from Burhanpur in Madhya Pradesh on Thursday, the police said.

Ijaj or Aziz Akram Khan (40), resident of Burhanpur, was wanted in a case registered against members of the Students Islamic Movement of India in Thane under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, said an official of Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS).
