New Delhi: The Delhi police on Monday arrested three Ismalic State (IS) terrorists wanted by the National Investigation Agency (NIA). The special cell of Delhi police nabbed the suspects after a massive search operation. “The module was planning to carry out terror incidents in North India based on inputs from foreign handlers. Incriminating material recovered including materials suspected to be used for IED fabrication,” police said. One of the suspected terrorist has been identified as Shahnawaz has a reward of Rs 3 lakh on him. He was wanted in the Pune ISIS case. The terrorist, who is a engineer was living in Delhi by hiding his identity. Police is interrogating the arrested terrorists and further details are awaited.

Last month, the NIA released pictures of four terror suspects, including that of Shahnawaz, wanted in the Pune ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) module case and declared a reward money of Rs 3 lakh each for credible information on them leading to their arrest. The agency has said that the identity of the informant will be kept confidential.

An engineer by profession, Shahnawaz had escaped from Pune police custody and was living in Delhi, police said.
Delhi Police Special Cell has also detained some other people. Further investigation is underway. Shahnawaz was briefly caught by Pune Police on the intervening night of July 17-18 when he was trying to steal a motorcycle in the Kothrud area of Pune.

During investigation, it had came to light that a foreign-based handler had possibly put Shahnawaz in touch with two other terror operatives with instructions to execute a terror strike.ZN
