Delhi Police has claimed to have foiled a major terror attack plot by arresting a Pakistani terrorist Mohammad Ashraf alias Ali from Laxmi Nagar in the capital. DCP Pramod Kushwaha of Delhi Police Special Cell has made many big revelations about this terrorist on Tuesday.
The DCP said that in the interrogation and investigation so far, it has been found that this terrorist has been trained by the Pakistani intelligence agency ISI. It was sent to India from the Siliguri border via Bangladesh. The Pak ISI handler, code-named Nasir, recruited it and was instructing him. It is also learned that he was involved in many terrorist activities in the past as well. He was also disguising himself as ‘Peer Maulana’ to carry out his conspiracy in and around Delhi.
