Mateen Hafeez I TNNMumbai: A state ATS team will soon head to Delhi to question Vishwa Hindu Mahasangh member Shailendra Chauhan (26) to ascertain if he played any role in the 2008 Malegaon blast case.
Chauhan was arrested by the special cell of the anti-terror wing of Delhi Police on June 25 in connection with the murder of a church employee.
Chauhan, the police said, was a close associate of Malegaon blast suspect Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur and was spotted with her a few weeks before her arrest in October last year. He was working for the radical outfit and had visited Mumbai two years ago, the police officials said.
