Delhi Police arrest Hizbul man, carry out raids in Jama Masjid area
The alleged operative Liaqat Ali, who hails from Kupwara
in Jammu and Kashmir, was on way to Delhi in a train when he was arrested from Gorakhpur, police sources said.
Sources claimed that he told them that some weapons were kept for him in a guest house in a Central Delhi locality.
Early morning raids by the Delhi Police were carried out in the old Delhi area of Jama Masjid, Chandni Chowk, which is but a stones throw away from where the India vs Australia Test is underway.
Police claim that they also seized an AK-47 automatic rifle and ammunition.
Security in the nearby areas, which was already on high alert, has been stepped up further and - police are looking for more operatives who might have sneaked in.
The last time this particular area, Jama Masjid, suffered a terror hit was when Taiwanese tourists were shot at on 19 September 2010.
Two men on a bike fired their gun at the tourists injuring two of them. With the Commonwealth Games round the corner then, it sent the entire security apparatus into a tizzy.
