Islamic State (IS) suspect held in Delhi

Islamic State (IS) suspect held in Delhi

New Delhi: A man suspected of being linked with the Islamic State (IS) terror outfit has been arrested in Delhi, the police said on Friday.

Mohsin Abraham Sayeed (26), a resident of Malad in Mumbai, was arrested at the Kashmiri Gate ISBT (Inter-State Bus Terminal) late Thursday night by the Special Cell of the Delhi Police.

"We arrested IS suspect Mohsin Abraham on a tipoff and recovered Rs.85,000 cash from his possession," Special Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Arvind Deep told IANS.

He said Sayeed was in touch with four Islamic State (IS) suspects who were arrested on January 19 in Haridwar district of Uttarakhand.

That takes the number of IS suspects arrested by Delhi Police to five.

The arrest of four suspects - Akhlaq-ur-Rehman, Mohammad Osama alias Adil, Mohammad Azimu Shaan and Mehraj - in Haridwar district was based on specific information by central intelligence agencies.

They had plans to carry out bombings during the ongoing Ardh Kumbh pilgrimage in Haridwar, in Roorkee-Haridwar-bound trains, in Delhi and some parts of the National Capital Region (NCR).

Ardh Kumbh pilgrimage started on January 1 this year and will end on April 30. During the four-month religious congregation, over five crore pilgrims are expected to visit the district to bathe in the holy Ganga river.
