Delhi Police busts Pakistan backed module

The Delhi Police’s Special Cell has busted a Pakistan-organised terror module and arrested six, including two Pakistan-trained suspected terrorists, officials said on Tuesday. Deputy Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Pramod Singh Kushwah said, “Pakistan-organised terror module has been busted.”

RDX-fitted IEDs (improvised explosive device) have been recovered from them in a multi-state operation. The live bomb was recovered from the Prayagraj district of Uttar Pradesh. The terrorists were allegedly planning several blasts across the country during the upcoming festivals, the Delhi Police said. Police said that the arrested men were tasked separately to execute different aspects of the terror plan. Of the total six arrested individuals, two terrorists named Osama and Zeeshan had been trained in Pakistan. Osama and Zeeshan, who were working under the instructions of Pak-ISI, were tasked to conduct the reconnaissance of different suitable locations in Delhi and UP for placing the IEDs. The terror plot to conduct multiple blasts in major cities of India was funded by Dawood’s gang, they added. The terror operation was closely coordinated from the other side of the border. Anees Ibrahim, is presently based in Pakistan, is stated to be the underworld connect of this module, police said. The underworld operative Sameer, a close contact of Anees Ibrahim, who is brother of Dawood Ibrahim, was tasked by a Pak-based person connected with underworld operatives hiding in Pakistan, to ensure smooth delivery of IED, sophisticated weapons and grenades to different entities in India.
