Delhi Police busts LeT plot targeting ‘VVIPs, crowded areas’

New Delhi: The Delhi Police successfully foiled a massive Lashkar-e-Taiba plot where an attack was being planned on prominent personalities and crowded areas in the national capital.

According to an FIR that was submitted on December 1 in a concerned anti-terror court, the LeT commanders have been in touch with the operatives in India using several code names.

It also states that the LeT operatives ‘Dujana’ and ‘Ujana’ have infiltrated in Jammu and Kashmir from Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) and are in touch with the operatives with the code names of Numan, Zaidi and Khursheed, in a move to ward off tech surveillance mounted by the cops.

The Delhi Police has also warned of possible Fidayeen attacks in the national capital and other areas.

Earlier, two espionage rackets were busted with arrests of five people from Jammu and Kashmir, Delhi and Kolkata. One of the men caught was suspected to be a handler from Pakistan’s ISI, while the other was a Border Security Force (BSF) personnel, claimed the Delhi police.

However, Pakistan Foreign Ministry spokesperson Qazi Khalilullah branded the entire operation as ‘baseless and unfounded’.

One of the accused Kafaitullah Khan, a resident of Jammu and Kashmir, allegedly had connections with an official of the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi. (ANI)
