The Maharashtra Police on Monday arrested four members of the Students Islamic Movement of India from Mana village in Akola district.

According to the police, they were arrested while trying to flee. The arrested have been identified as Sayyed ibrahim, Abdul Razzak and Maqsud Mehboob Khan, they said.

The police busted a secret SIMI meeting in Mana village where nearly 35 SIMI members were present.

SIMI was banned by the government in 2002 for its involvement in terrorist attacks in India. It has been labeled a terrorist organisation by both India and the United States.

In August 2008, a special tribunal lifted the ban on SIMI. The ban was subsequently reinstated by the Supreme Court on August 6, 2008.
