Foiling a major conspiracy, the Special Cell of Delhi Police arrested five terrorists from the Shakarpur area on Monday. Among these five terrorists, three are from the Kashmiri Islamic Terrorist Organization and two are from Khalistan. Several deadly weapons of market-value approximately ₹74 lakh have been recovered from them.
The Delhi Police is investigating the links of these terrorists including some farmer organizations. According to reports, the terrorists landed in Delhi to execute a big conspiracy. After inputs from the intelligence units, these terrorists were arrested from the Eastern New Delhi area, Shakarpur.
Interrogation of these terrorists is currently underway in the office of Delhi Police’s Special Cell. The DCP of Special Cell, Pramod Kushwaha, said that these caught terrorists were supported and funded by the Narco-terrorism group of Pakistan’s ISI. However, the name of the exact terrorist organization is yet to be confirmed. One of the five arrested terrorists is identified as the killer of Punjab’s Shaurya Chakra winner, Balwinder Singh Sandhu.
Earlier, some reports already speculated the possibility that terrorists can try to conspire attacks in Delhi on the pretext of farmer agitation. It was reported that some terrorists are also trying to sneak into the protest sites and the number of international calls have also increased in the protest areas.
India’s intelligence department already gave these crucial inputs to the Ministry of Home Affairs on Friday. As a result of intelligence’s alertness and timely inputs, Special Cell Officers and Delhi Crime Branch Police were deployed around the protest areas, following the orders of the Ministry of Home Affairs. A senior officer of the Special Cell, Delhi Police said that these terrorists wanted to force a confrontation between the farmers and police. He mentioned that these terrorists were also linked with a particular anti-national organization. Significantly, Police officials already mentioned some days ago that some people among the protesters were getting calls from several foreign countries which raised suspicion.
