Is there a specific algorithm such as Aho-Corasick Algorithm; which Mahout implements for
NER. I went through the Mahout website and it dosen't seem to have any NER related algorithm.

Such a functionality is not available in Mahout. I think that GATE should also be mentioned

Further there is a company called OpenCalais which is doing a lot for Named Entity Recognition:
