New Delhi, Dec 7 (IANS): The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Thursday said it has arrested an arms supplier involved in the murder of RSS leader Ravinder Gosain in Ludhiana in Punjab.

An NIA official told IANS: "The agency has arrested Malook who is accused of providing weapons to the assailants who killed Gosain." The arrest was made during a joint operation by the NIA and the Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force on Wednesday.

Constable Tahzib Khan suffered a leg injury when the mob stoned the raiding team and even fired at them. The mob also damaged an official vehicle.

NIA teams are reportedly searching for him in the National Capital Region.
