Terming the arrest of four suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorists by special cell of Delhi Police as a “big success”, Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde on Sunday said it would help in getting more links to nab other terrorists.
“Waqas, who is a Pakistani terrorist, was wanted in various terrorist attacks in the country. We were tracking him since the last 8-10 days,” he told reporters here.
To a question, Shinde said, “We had said that when the time comes we will disclose about it. It is a big success for us. We have got him. His arrest is most important.”
“His (Waqas’) arrest will help us in providing more links. We are in process of nabbing 2-3 more terrorists. If I mention any case in which he is involved, it will not be good on account of evidence,” Shinde added.
Waqas was wanted by police in connection with several blasts in the country including the serial blasts at Zaveri Bazaar in Mumbai on July 12, 2011.
Sources said those arrested were operating from Jodhpur in Rajasthan and planning a big strike during the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Police have also recovered large quantity of incriminating material from those arrested in the case.
