New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: The Delhi Police Special Cell has busted a Pakistan-organised terror module arresting 6 people including two terrorists who received training in Pakistan. One person identified as Sameer was arrested from Kota, two persons were arrested from Delhi and three people were arrested from Uttar Pradesh. Of these two people were taken to Pakistan to train in explosives and firearms for 15 days.

“Delhi Police Special Cell busts Pak organised terror module, arrests two Pak-trained terrorists; Explosives and firearms recovered in a multi-state operation,” said DCP Special Cell Pramod Kushwaha.

"We have arrested one Sameer from Kota, two persons arrested from Delhi, and three people arrested from Uttar Pradesh. Out of the 6 people, two were taken to Pakistan via Muscat where they were trained in explosives & firearms including AK-47 for 15 days," said Delhi Police Special Cell.

Neeraj Thakur, Special CP, Delhi Police Special Cell said there were 14-15 Bangla speaking persons in their group who might have been taken for similar training. It looks like this operation was closely coordinated from across the border.

The arrests were made following raids in Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Prayagraj and Delhi, the police said. The Special Cell said the suspects were planning to carry out targeted killings and blasts across the country.

The police also said the module was divided into two teams. "One was being coordinated by Dawood Ibrahim's brother, Anees Ibrahim. It was tasked to get the arms into India from across the border and keeping them concealed here. The other team was to arrange funding via Hawala," the Special Cell said.

The Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terror Squad assisted the Delhi Police in the operation.

Earlier, in July, the Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) had made five arrests in connection with another alleged terror plot. The UP ATS had also said that it had uncovered “a big terror module” following arrests of the two suspects.
