Top Indian Mujahideen terrorist Zia Ur Rehman alias Waqas, a Pakistani national wanted in connection with several bombings, and three associates were arrested from Rajasthan by Delhi Police on Saturday and Sunday. Police claimed to have averted a “spectacular terror attack” during elections. Two alleged operatives of the banned Indian Mujahideen arrested from a rented accommodation in Pratap Nagar were engineering students. According to police, both the youths were trained to make 15-20 bombs on a short notice of 20 minutes.
Ammunition and bomb making equipments were lying all over the place and even on the study table. The kitchen was stuffed with Magnesium Sulphate which is used in making bombs. “They never cooked food in the house, at most they used to make tea,” said property owner Shahid Ahmed.
