    Two Hizbul militants arrested in Delhi

    New Delhi (PTI): Two suspected Hizbul Mujahideen militants, who were allegedly planning terror strikes here ahead of Independence Day, were arrested on Thursday, a senior Delhi police official said.

    Javed Ahmed and Ashiq Ali were apprehended by Delhi Police' special cell from central Delhi's Daryaganj area when they were travelling in a white Santro car.

    "We caught them from Mahavir parking area," Joint Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) P N Agarwal said.

    The arrest came nine days ahead of the Independence Day celebrations in the national capital.

    "We had intelligence inputs about the movement of these militants and we tracked them," the officer said.

    The arrest came hours after Union Home Ministry made public intelligence inputs about LeT planning terror attack in three cities -- Delhi, Hyderabad and Kolkata -- ahead of August 15.

    The official said two AK-47 rifles, about 100 catridges and two grenades were also recovered from the militants, who were in their early 30s.

    Asked about their nationality, the official said they appeared to be Indians.

    Following intelligence inputs about terror strikes, the Delhi Police has deployed hundreds of policemen and paramilitary personnel across the city.

    Security agencies are constantly reviewing arrangements at the Red Fort, where Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will unfurl the tricolour.

    Specialised units like Quick Reaction Teams, Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT) and Vajra (of the Rapid Action force) are being deployed, an official said.

    Arrested Hizbul men trained in Pakistan: Police

    New Delhi, Aug 7 (PTI) Two suspected Hizbul Mujahideen militants, who were arrested here last night, had undergone training in terror camps in Pakistan and had been told to carry out strikes in the national capital, police sources said today.

    They also said that the alleged terrorists hailed from Kupwara in Jammu and Kashmir.

    Javed Ahmed and Ashiq Ali, who were in their early thirties, were nabbed by a team of Delhi Police' elite anti-terror wing, the Special Cell, from Central Delhi's Daryaganj locality last night.

    "Both have accepted links with Pakistan-based terror groups," a senior police officer said shortly before they were produced in court.

    Ahmed and Ali, who were in a white Santro car, were intercepted by police at Mahavir Vatika parking area following an intelligence input, the officer said.

    The Hindu : Front Page : Militants were sent to India on ‘important’ assignment

    NEW DELHI: The two suspected Hizbul Mujahideen militants arrested in the Walled City on Thursday night had been sent to India by the outfit’s supreme commander, Syed Salahuddin, on an “important” assignment.

    They were remanded to 10-day police custody by a court here on Friday.

    The police are trying to ascertain whether Javed Ahmad Tantray and Ashiq Ali Butt had been sent to carry out a strike in the run-up to the Independence Day celebrations here on August 15.

    Their interrogation so far revealed that Salahuddin and his deputy, Khalid Saifullah, met them separately at training camps in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir seven months ago and asked them to remain prepared for an important assignment. A fortnight later, another militant Shahid told them to sneak into India through Nepal. He also procured passports and visas for them.

    Javed and Ashiq allegedly met for the first time at Rawalpindi in Pakistan on July 29 through Shahid. He gave them Rs.40,000 and took them from Islamabad to Karachi, from where they boarded a flight to Nepal. Another handler at Pokhara in Nepal helped them sneak into India through Sanauli in Uttar Pradesh. The two boarded a train at Gorakhpur to Jammu on Monday. In Jammu, they were contacted by Faiyaz, who arranged for them a white Santro car and two AK-47 rifles, two hand grenades and four magazines. They were asked to go to Darya Ganj in the Walled City and contact Shahid in Pakistan.

    On a tip-off that the militants would come in a Santro car bearing a Haryana registration number, Special Cell sleuths trailed the vehicle from the Singhu border till the Mahavir Vatika parking area. One of the suspects then made a call to Shahid from a public telephone booth for instructions, after which they were arrested. Two fake identity cards said to be issued by the district magistrates of Kupwara and Anantnag were allegedly seized.

    They revealed that Shahid had instructed them to meet a person at Sarai Kale Khan in South Delhi for further instructions. The police conducted a raid, but could not trace the suspect.

    Joint Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) P. N. Aggarwal said Ashiq was initiated into militancy in 2003. In August that year, he allegedly underwent religious training in the jungles of Kathua. Along with 60 others, he crossed over to Muzaffarabad for training at the Boi camp. He underwent further training in handling of weapons at the Aath Mukam camp
