"They used to get safe havens in other parts of the world, but not anymore. We had continued advocacy on this matter and people [countries] have changed their minds. They are not getting place to hide any more," said Khurshid referring to arrest of Bhatkal.
"India is satisfied that they have to answer for their actions now be it in India or outside," he said.
Khurshid said from wherever terrorists like Bhatkal may be flushed out, India would welcome it.
"But if this is happening it is because of our efforts," he said, adding that the government does not need any cheap publicity for that.
Yasin Bhatkal, the co-founder of terror outfit Indian Mujahideen (IM), which is responsible for several blasts across the nation killing many people at various times, has been arrested, Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde said on Thursday.
"He has been arrested from Bihar along India-Nepal border last night," said Shinde, confirming the news of arrest of one of India´s most wanted terrorists.
"Yasin has been traced and he is under the custody of Bihar police. Interrogation is going on," he added. Reports said he would be brought to New Delhi later.
He, however, refused to give the details of intelligence agencies behind the arrest. Reports said some of his movements were tipped off by the US federal investigating agency FBI.
The 30-year-old Bhatkal´s arrest is seen as a major success of the Indian agencies. Hailing from Karnataka, his real name is Mohammed Ahmed Siddibappa and there was a Rs 10 lakh reward on him announced by Mumbai Police.
Indian Mujahideen (IM) has carried out several attacks against civilian targets in India. It is a front for the Pakistan based Lashkar-e-Taiba. Bhatkal co-founded IM in 2008 with his brother Riyaz Bhatkal and Abdul Subhan Qureshi.
IM is responsible for major strikes like the Pune´s German bakery blast where CCTV footage also captured him planing the bomb. He was also reportedly seen at the scene of the Hyderabad blast in Feb this year. He had executed attacks in Bangalore and Ahmedabad too killing over 50 people in the blasts in the Gujarat city in 2008.
In May 2008 after bombings in Jaipur, IM had sent an e-mail to Indian media in which they claimed responsibility for the attacks.
Investigators believe that Indian Mujahideen is one of many groups composed of lower-tier SIMI members. SIMI or Students Islamic Movement of India is a banned Islamic student organisation that was formed in Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, in 1977.
The Indian Mujahideen was branded a terrorist organisation by India in June 2010. Countries like USA and others also declared IM a terror outfit.
