Combined police elements arrested an alleged member of the Abu Sayyaf group yesterday morning while he was confined at the Basilan General Hospital due to a vehicular accident.

PNP Sr. Supt. Restituto Pangusban, Isabela City Police Chief, identified the suspect as Pangamdas Tanjil y Alim aka Torotoy Abbas, 35 years old, and a resident of Barangay Tuburan.

Tanjil was arrested during a service of warrant for the crimes of Kidnapping and Serious Illegal Detention issued by the Regional Trial Court in Basilan province last October 15, 2009.

The suspect was brought to the hospital at around 10am yesterday after reportedly figuring in a vehicular accident.

The suspect immediately underwent inquest proceedings and was immediately committed to the Basilan Provincial Jail.  (Richard Falcatan)
