Ariz Khan was arrested by the Special Cell of Delhi Police in February 2018. Khan, the police say, was at the spot during the Batla encounter but managed to escape. The encounter had taken place on September 19, 2008. The operation began after the Delhi Police came to know that five Indian Mujahideen operatives — Shahzad Ahmed, Ariz Khan alias Junaid, Atif Ameen, Mohd Sajid and Mohd Saif — were hiding at Batla House in Jamia Nagar. Atif Ameen and Mohd Sajid were killed during the encounter while Shahzad was convicted in 2013.
