Four more persons have been arrested in connection with Tuesday's seizure of arms and explosives from suspected Lashker-e-Taiba(LeT) terrorists in Aurangabad, taking the tally to eight, police said.
According to Anti-Terrorist Squad(ATS) chief, KP Raghuvanshi, the four persons arrested on Saturday are residents of Malegaon in Nasik district and had helped the LeT cadre to change the registration number plates of two cars in which the arms and explosives were being transported.
"By helping the LeT suspects, these people have also participated in the conspiracy," Raghuvanshi said.
Abdul Azim, the driver of the car in which three LeT suspects were travelling, surrendered to police at Aurangabad on Friday.
The arrested persons, including Azim, will be brought to Mumbai during the day and produced before a local court, ATS sources said.
Three LeT suspects had been arrested from Aurangabad on Tuesday, 350 km from here and the ATS recovered 10 AK-47 rifles, 30 kg RDX, 2000 rounds and 40 magazines from them.
