Three suspected terrorists arrested from Srinagar by Delhi police and J and K police joint operation

The terrorists were planning a terror attack in Delhi

The Delhi Police special cell and Jammu & Kashmir police have arrested three alleged terrorists early on Sunday in Srinagar and seized hand grenades and weapons from them. Police said that the arrested suspected terrorists planned to carry out a terror strike in Delhi. According to police, they belong to the Islamic State Jammu and Kashmir (ISJK), a terror outfit influenced by ISIS.


Earlier police had sounded an alert in Delhi on Tuesday and released photographs of two alleged Jaish-e-Mohammed operatives who could try to carry out a terror attack in the city. The alert came on an intelligence input in wake of November 18 grenade attack at a religious congregation in Amritsar that left three people dead and 20 others injured.


The suspected terrorists are from Kashmir. They were arrested from near a tourist information centre at Kothibagh near Srinagar in a joint operation of Delhi police and J & K Police. The three men are identified as Tahir Ali Khan from Tral, Haris Mushtaq Khan from Budgam and Asif Suhail Nadaf from Rainawari, Srinagar.

The arrested men are being interrogated to procure information from them. “They are being questioned to know motives and source of weapons,” an officer said.
