New Delhi: Home Minister P Chidambaram declared on Wednesday that a Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) sponsored terror bid was foiled in New Delhi. Two suspected Lashkar-e-Toiba militants were arrested earlier in the day from the Nizamuddin area in the capital.
Chidambaram said, "Our agencies have busted a LeT sponsored module. People have been arrested in Delhi and are being presented in the court. Some other persons in other states have been detained. This module had planned a terrorist incident in Delhi. Central agencies and police have busted their plan."
While addressing a Press Conference the Home Minister said that Lashkar-e-Toiba was planning to detonate a bomb in a crowded locality in New Delhi and further interrogations will reveal more about their plan.
There were no VVIPs on the target of the module. They wanted to detonate bombs in crowded localities, said Chidambaram.
The Home Minister also complimented the central agencies and police of three states for busting the terror module.
The Delhi Police chief said that the arrest of two Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorists is a good catch and the duo were planning to strike anytime.
