The terrorist has been identified as Bilal Ahmed Kawa.

According to Kawa's cousin Hina, the terror suspect went to the national capital to meet his wife and daughter, who went to Delhi to spend the winter.

The Red Fort in Delhi came under terrorist attack on Dec 22, 2000. Pramod Kushwah, deputy commissioner of police (special cell), said, "We arrested the suspect after it was confirmed that he was the same man we had been looking for in the Red Fort terrorist shootout case".

While Kawa was on run, a trial court in October 2005, had awarded death sentence to Pakistan-based LeT militant Mohammad Arif alias Ashfaq, while two key conspirators - Nazir Ahmed Qasid and his son Farooq Ahmed Qasid - were awarded life imprisonment.
