Six people

DELHI, NEW DELHI: The Indian intelligence establishment and Delhi Police's special cell apprehended six alleged terror operatives in an extensive multi-state operation, foiling a nefarious plan concocted by Pakistan espionage agency ISI and 'D Company' to carry out serial bombings and target assassinations across numerous cities.

Police seized IEDs carrying RDX, grenades, Beretta pistols, and ammo that had been stockpiled for attacks on huge crowds during the approaching festivals, according to Delhi's anti-terror unit commander, Pramod Kushwaha. So far, one kilogramme of RDX has been discovered.Through his underworld links, Dawood Ibrahim's brother Anees was directly directing plot implementation and handling recruiting, funding, transportation, and other logistical components.

The ISI and the Pakistani military trained two of the captured guys, Mohammad Osama from Delhi and Zeeshan from Prayagraj, at Gioni in the Gwadar port area. Ibrahim's thugs first transported them to Muscat, then transported them to Pakistan via sea. During this time, they were investigated by many agencies.Multiple IEDs had been planned from sources across the border, and they were nearing completion when the agencies swooped down on them, saving dozens of lives.

The chief handler and D Company henchman, Jaan Mohammed Sheikh alias Sameer Kaliya (47), a resident of Mumbai's Social Nagar, was the first to be apprehended.On his route to Delhi, he was kidnapped off a running train at Kota, Rajasthan. He led the teams to Mohammad Osama (22) alias Sami, a resident of Jamia Nagar's Abu Fazal Enclave. Simultaneously, detectives apprehended Moolchand (47), a native of Rae Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh, a D Company affiliate and hawala trader.

The arrests of Zeeshan Qamar from Prayagraj and Mohammad Amir Javed from Lucknow resumed the raids. Mohammed Abu Bakar (23), a Bahraich native, was apprehended near Delhi's Sarai Kale Khan. On Tuesday at noon, police commissioner Rakesh Asthana reviewed the operation. A crack team lead by ACP Lalit Mohan Negi and Hriday Bhushan carried out the operation.Teams led by inspectors Sunil Rajain, Ravinder Joshi, and Vinay Pal conducted the raids and made the arrests.

According to the authorities, each of the arrested individuals was assigned to carry out a particular aspect of the terror plot."The underworld operative, Sameer, a close contact of Anees Ibrahim, was tasked by a Pak-based person connected with underworld operatives hiding in Pakistan to ensure smooth delivery of IEDs, sophisticated weapons and grenades to different entities in India," DCP Kushwaha said.
