The Anti-Terrorist Squad of Mumbai Police has arrested three suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists in Aurangabad.

The police also seized 10 AK-47 assault rifles and 40-kg RDX from them.

The raid, conducted by the ATS on Tuesday following a tip-off by Delhi police, who killed an LeT terrorist in an encounter two days ago in the capital, led to the seizure of 40 AK-47 magazines and over 2000 rounds besides the automatic guns and the RDX, sources said.

They added that the suspected LeT terrorists were trying to flee with the arms when they were arrested by the ATS.

ATS sources said that apart from Aurangabad, a search was also carried out at an undisclosed place in Mumbai but police did not recover anything suspicious.

In both operations, the ATS was joined by a team of Delhi police.

The arrested LeT suspects will be brought to city later in the afternoon and will be produced in court.
