The Delhi Police have arrested three suspected Indian Mujahideen (IM) operatives allegedly planning to target the city during the festival season.

Police commissioner Neeraj Kumar said two suspects — Asad Khan, 33, and Imran Khan, 31 — were arrested from south Delhi’s Pul Prahladpur on September 26. The third, Syed Feroz, 38, was arrested from Nizamuddin railway station five days later.

“They were involved in the Pune serial blasts in August and were planning to strike Delhi’s markets and a temple in Bodh Gaya in Bihar,” he said. Five kg of explosives and 10 detonators were seized from them.
