The Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) sponsored terror module busted in New Delhi on Wednesday had planned to attack a crowded locality with bombs, Union home minister P Chidambaram said in New Delhi.

"There was no VVIP on their target," he told a press conference in Delhi hours after central agencies and police forces of three states busted a terror module by arresting two suspected LeT militants.

They were planning to detonate a bomb or more than one bomb in a crowded locality, he said adding more details would come after their detailed questioning.

They will be produced before courts in Delhi and other respective states, he said.

The home minister congratulated central agencies and police of three states involved in the successful operation to bust an important LeT sponsored terrorist module.

Earlier on Wednesday in a major operation, Delhi Police arrested two LeT terrorists who were planning to carry out terror strikes in the capital targeting vital installations.

Delhi Police sources said the operation was launched to nab the two Lashkar-e-Toiba men after receiving inputs from Central intelligence agencies that the duo have entered the capital to carry out strikes.

Effective coordination with Jammu and Kashmir and Jharkhand Police helped nab the two terrorists, the sources said.

They said the two were planning to carry out major strikes in the national capital by targeting vital installations and VVIPs.
