The officer added that Khan, who is also known by aliases including Abu Amaar and Arif, first came under the scanner of multiple investigating agencies due to his suspected involvement on a fidayeen attack on the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) camp in Rampur, U.P. on January 1, 2008. Khan is said to be part of a hawala network that transfers money to terror operative in India.
