Following the attack, police said Kawa changed his name and moved locations three times in Jammu and Kashmir. "As this wasn't enough to support his wife and three children, he chose to look for a job in Delhi", police sources said.

Kawa, 37, a proclaimed offender in the case, has been on the run since 2000 and was hiding in Kashmir, police said, adding that he was arrested on information that he was travelling from Srinagar to Delhi. Special Cell said Kawa needs to be interrogated by several other agencies.

According to Kawa's cousin Hina, the terror suspect went to the national capital to meet his wife and daughter, who went to Delhi to spend the winter.

The terrorist attack took place on Red Fort in Delhi on 22 December 2000, claiming three innocent lives. Mohammad Arif from Pakistan's Abbottabad, who planned the attack, and 10 others have already been convicted in the case.
