In a joint operation with central intelligence agencies and Uttarakhand Police, Delhi Police special cell have arrested a suspected militant and detained his three accomplices from Mangaur area near Roorkee in Uttarakhand on Tuesday night. The suspects are said to be associated with Jaish-e-Mohammed, the Pakistan based terror outfit allegedly involved in Pathankot terror strikes.

Sources in Special Cell said that one of the suspected militant has been identified as Akhlaq and he has been placed under arrest. The suspects are being questioned for a probable strike in Ardh Kumbh being held in Haridawar. The sleuths are also interrogating them in connection with the Pathankot terror attack where a group of Pakistani militants attacked Air Force station.

All the four are being brought to Delhi and will be produced before the concerned court on Wednesday. Senior special cell officials refused to comment on the entire operations, though they did not deny the arrest as well.

Officials said the teams were conducting raids in Uttarakhand for arrest of more suspects.
