The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Saturday arrested a student leader from Bihar’s capital Patna for his alleged links with internationally banned terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).

A senior police officer on condition of anonymity said, “Raja is suspected of being in constant touch with LeT leaders.”

According to sources, the agency sleuths are questioning Raja at an unknown location in the national capital.
