Two members of terror group Al-Qaeda nabbed from Haryana by Delhi police

Gurgaon, January 18: In a joint operation by Delhi Police and a central intelligence agency, two men have been arrested for having links with terror group Al-Qaeda from Mewat district in Haryana.
The suspected terrorists have been identified as Mohamad Qasim and Abdul Sami, residents of Jamshedpur district in Jharkhand, the latter believed to be a key operative of the banned terror outfit, who allegedly received arms training in Pakistan.

Qasim and Sami had reached Punhana sub-town in Muslim- dominated Mewat district two days ago and were residing in a mosque situated on Punhana Hodal Road, Punhan Police said.

Following a tip-off yesterday night, a team of Delhi Police and a central intelligence agency reached the place and some youth were rounded up for questioning, a local senior police official said.

"During interrogation, the sleuths found Qasim and Sami hesitant while revealing their identities and their objective of visiting Punhana, after which they were arrested", DSP Punhana Ratandeep Bali said.

A senior official of Delhi Police, however, clearly stated that "only one person has been arrested by them. Besides Sami, no other person has been arrested or detained by the Delhi Police," Special Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Arvind Deep, said on Tuesday.

"Sami was arrested by Delhi Police's Special Cell from Nuh town in Mewat yesterday. He was brought here and produced before a court which remanded him in police custody till February 1," Deep said.

Sami was allegedly mentored by Abdul Rahman, a madrassa cleric who was arrested from Jagatpur area of Cuttack in Odisha, in December by a Special Cell team, a senior Delhi Police official said.

Rahman's arrest was the second in the ongoing operation. Three persons have been identified by police whom Rahman had inducted in al Qaeda's module in the Indian sub-continent (AQIS) and sent for training
